Your x5 is much more resistant to carbon build up and egr issues as your engine is more stressed (which is good for diesels) and has superior 2 part egr vs the the same engine in the 335d.

You're lucky you dumped it while your car was still worth something. My fully loaded $57,000 MSRP 2010 335 is probably only worth $16000 on trade in. What's even sadder is that my wife's 2010 Honda...

The indy's here don't know jack about our 335d's. The extent of their experience is basically basic maintenance like brakes/fluid changes.

They should be covered too AFAIK, the 335i extended warranty rates are pretty much on par to the 335d's.
