Anyone Replaced Second Set of Throttle Actuators?

For the guys with the high mileage e9x M3s, have any of you had to replace throttle actuators more than once?

It seems on average, these initially tend to die on us at around 50k miles give or take. With several members well over 100k miles, I was wondering if they'd had to keep replacing these OR the replacement part has actually been improved?

Yes. Replaced the factory pair at around 52k as I recall, and then both replacements failed within a couple months. These were OEM BMW actuators which have a two year warranty so between my extended warranty and the BMW part warranty, I paid zero out of pocket for the four actuators....

Both replacement parts were clearly faulty from the factory, hence the quick failure. The two in now (#'s 5 and 6) have been fine for the last 10,000 miles.

One went bad on our '08 e90' we replaced both at 88k, the old TA's were dated 2008, so I assume they were original.
We are now around 97,000 miles.

Sorry guys, I meant those who have replaced the TA more than once for the same bank.
