I'm at 92k in my 2010 335D Sport and very much interested in doing the EGR/DPF/DEF delete. Emissions is not a concern for me, longevity and reliability are!

Just a follow up on this leaking charge air hose issue I had.

It wasn't the charge air hose going to the intercooler, it was the one leaving the cooler to the intake. It has one metal pipe with...

Could be "normal", hard to say. Cold, idle is definitely noisier than "normal".

Are you windows opened or closed?

Fuel quality could also be a factor.

Also, if there is any type of leak in...

Those are rather minor issues, easily repaired and most certainly already done.

Looks like a reasonable price for the last year they made the 335d, and miles are not bad.

Thanks, I sent my SA an email to inquire and referenced three (3) SIBs related to failed taillights for the 2010 335D.

Thanks, very interesting!

I'll look for those SIBs. Was yours covered the original 4 year/50k mile warranty or after during the extended warranty?
