I was in Wyoming about 100 miles from the nearest town with a decent tire shop this summer when my right rear gave up the ghost. Fifty-three miles from any town. I tried slime first; no dice. Then...

Road trips are wonderful in the 335d. I have taken two very long ones: 6,500 miles and about 3,000. I had all those tire rescue items plus a 12v air compressor. Post some pics and a trip report. ...

I have used Blizzak LM-25 225/45-17 RFTs on my 2011 335d for two winters, 2012 and 2013. I liked them fine. I have a rather heavily modified suspension. During warmer part of the year, I have used...

I would guess it would be hard for the body shop to miss those filler ports when doing the work. That sort of thing is at minimum unethical; whether it becomes fraud or not I wouldn't know.

It could be that the X5d has a different regimen for the DEF. My 2011 335d manual clearly states the warning comes at 1,000 miles to go, not 1,000 km, and the caveat paragraph reads as follows:
