This is the best summary I have seen. In the Pollyanna corner, I would just say that some of the repairs are inexpensive, and others can be mitigated by, ahem, upgrading the emissions system.

Diff fluid is so easy if you have a lift. Only issue is, no drain plug so you need to put a 90 deg bend in your suction thing to slurp out the fluid at the bottom.

I have the 335d but I just went to Sears and bought a 27mm socket. BTW has anyone been to a Sears lately? I think I was the only customer there. Weird.

Mefferso yes from, the onboard readout. Before the deletes it would occasionally touch 690 or 700, but now it regularly hits 760 although I refuel before getting that close to empty.

This Guardian article reads like the Tim Robbins spech in Team America: World Police. Which is an excellent movie by the way.

After the deletes my 335d routinely gets over 700 and as high as 760. Getting over 600 just requires a mix of city and highway and judicious use of the skinny pedal. I also use Power Service.
