Technically, the move from the M57D30B2 (used in 2009-2012 335Ds and x35Ds) to the N57D30O2 (in the F10 chassis 535D [really like a Euro-spec 530D] and the X5 xDrive35d) allowed BMW to catch the...

Pierre, agree that fuel, oil and DDE s/w are the major controllable factors, along with driving usage that may not be as controllable.

Don't you use the EV for commuting and taking the kids to/from school, then?

Other than short (~3mi) driving, is there any other driving you do that truly needs something more than the EV?

If it's a 2010 335i, you may want to read up on N54 HPFP failures. For (many) 335d's the issue is carbon build up (CBU), as d_geek noted early in the thread.


Test drive both if you can, and let...

I would think that if they made an M550xd, there's no reason a true 535d couldn't be made with x-drive either.
