You might want to ask on the e90 diesel forum. Smoking is fairly normal for older diesels, especially on cold days and when you hit the skinny pedal.

Hooper my experience tracks with yours. After directing the pump to prime before cranking (I have EDIABAS but I was at a club DIY and used the shop's computer) it fired up immediately.

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.
