    Hello All,

    As the title states, I need a cylinder head for my 2003 TD6 as the Glow plugs are welded in the original.
    I'm having real difficulty finding one at a decent price and desperately need some advice.
    I believe it is the M57 d30 BMW engine so I was wondering if I could substitute a BMW head as they are easy enough to attain but I'm not sure if they vary in design.
    My original head has a casting number 012NDB 7788581.9

    Has anyone else done this? Is there anything I need to know when buying?

    Thanks in advance for your time!

    Cheers
    Paul
