I've got 127k on mine and it's still fine,

£61 for that metal arm kit is a joke. Easily made from a visit to a model shop if you want one made from metal.

What do you think ?
This kit seems to be the solution for people with broken ball joint, as it seems he cuts it away anyway.

I deleted the whole flap system from my V70. Took away the swirl flap axle and filled the remaining groove with cnc machined aluminum bits. Of course, to do this you have to remove injectors, intake manifold etc.
