I figure 1000 mile warning is enough. I so rarely fill the DEF anyway. My 335D seems to use one gallon of DEF for every 5000 miles. The usage went WAY down after the last DDE update following CBU...

My understanding is that in the past small items such as minor dents, scratches, wheel rash would be handled by the VDC. That was the past, no more.

I'm hoping a redesigned replacement DEF tank will solve most of the issues. I also expect to pay for a CBU cleaning at some point in the future. Then if just a NOx sensor or a hose here and there...

Haha, :yikes: I go and write this and the car just popped the SES. Looks like the temp sensor in the DEF tank. I have an extended warranty so it should be covered.

If you put the system in Recirc mode, it will cool better, especially on humid days. You do have the dash temp wheel set to 3 blue dots (full cold)?

Try driving down the road at about 30-40 with the sunroof open. Then push down on the slipstream deflector and see what happens. (I've done it, when I had one).

I tried cracking the back windows, did not help. The Slip Stream Deflector is definitely missing. I just hope it's a snap on and they do not need to disassemble it a 3rd time. :mad:
