    I have a 2007 R56 that had an engine rebuild last year after it gave up on life and itís still burning oil. I had an OCC fitted by B&M back in April and itís frightening how much stuff gets collected in it to the point that Iím thinking of getting a second one fitted on the in side of things! Iím thinking my turbo is goosed though, canít really be anything else considering Iíve had so much work done to the blooming thing! So yes, would recommend, would definitely recommend one that has an external level indicator as itís a pain in the hoop having to take the thing apart every other week to check it!

    Im thinking of doing one of these.

    Did anyone do this along with the Rear PCV block plugs from Peugeot?

    Following this post with interest. I've been doing a bit of research recently on this and if you check out the GT Tuning page, they strongly recommend you don't blank off the pcv. Instead they offer a two can setup, but at a hefty 200 quid each. I'm up to 64k miles so should be looking at decoke/ walnut blast, or my preferred option of a recon head. No point putting clean parts on if I don't sort out the pcv build up issue.
    Anyone had issues with fitting only one catch can?

    That's me ordered a cheapo occ and fittings to make it work. Also found oil leak at turbo oil feed hose. So ordered that as well. Will be a busy weekend ahead.
