Z4 on Ebay with a brand new engine due to an apparently common problem of the cyclone valve freezing in winter...

"this car apart last year had a new engine built using all GENUINE bmw parts due to the cyclone valve failing in the winter when it froze up this is a common problem and bmw have released a new modified version which doesnt do this the result of this failing was the engine sucked up its own oil into the intake system"

Anyone heard of this apparently common engine killing issue?
