Unlike the Bosch CP4.1 failures in VW/Audi tid, the CP3.2 has been quite reliable. My guess is that you got some contaminated fuel.

You're taking the chance of voiding powertrain/emissions warranty.
If you do choose to go with B20 then keep an eye on your oil level and you may want to get an oil analysis at around 5k mi.

It would be interesting to see what BMW corporate would say about that response from the SA.

I don't think there are any reports of carbon build up on the 4 cyl diesel. I also have not heard of them in the 535d or many of the X5 35d. So it seems that the E90 335d is the only design with a...
