Not sure why BMW would "push dealers to sell injection flushes" when they don't get anything for them. Premium fuel is already required and nearly always contains cleaners. It's the DEALER who want's to push any service to make more money.

Where's your proof Costco gas is bad, and will lead to dirty injectors??

Let me get this straight... You are swapping out parts designed by some of the top engineers in the world because some guys sponsored by a company told you it's "better??" But when you ask the same guy about tracking, "oh no, I have a kid now" or "I just detailed my car." or "i just got new tires."
