    That's brill Mike :-bd
    I remember seeing it years ago when I did my CDV delete but lost the link.
    It needs sticky-ing in the wiki area

    The CDV on ///Ms is incorporated in the hydraulic pipe
    It has a smaller hole at the slave end to restrict the release flow of hydraulic fluid
    The CDV delete comprises a straight through pipe in this case
    The illustrations in HT's link show the various CDVs fitted to non-///M BMWs

    This was mine (non-///M) before and after
    The CDV is clearly visible in the second pic after a squirt of WD40

    Hi Frankie, the 1.9 does not have one fitted, only the hairdresser versions have them fitted, makes shifting easier in stilettos :ymdevil:
