Default Re: Throttle Actuator rebuild from UK

I think it is as good as new. And it comes with a lifetime warranty. One theory is that the gears wear and that puts more stress on the electronics and causes them to fail. If both the gears and electronics are upgraded then the rebuild should be reliable. If you do want to spend more to buy new, the VDO Continental actuator is the same one BMW sells. In the US, you can find them for $500, while the BMW logo version is about $600.
