This is a miss-conception: DPF has little or nothing to do with CBU. It's EGR that is the issue.

This.

All F3x have iDrive. Not all F3x have navigation - it's a separate screen.

This should be moved to the F3x section, or you should re-post there.

no vacuum

The N52/N51 is a valvetronic motor. There is no vacuum. The brake vacuum line leads to the vacuum pump, NOT the manifold.

I have long arms, and I don't think I could reach under to re-insert the oil drain plug. You're welcome to try and let us know.

You definitely can't use an M54 motor from an E46, or an N52 from 2006 E90 sedans. You need an N51 (or N52) from 2007 and later, preferably from 2007-9. AWD/pan can be swapped by experienced...

Probably not the wastegate, more likely it's the exhaust flap in the left-side pipe that helps with warmup.

Even the DHP suspension is slightly different (ride height) between xDrive and RWD.
