I guess I'll have to drive one. I simply could not stand the 328i's. Still I wish they brought over the 325d instead of the 320d. I have a hard time swallowing $50k for < 200 hp.

Good for them. I wonder how well they are selling as the premium for the diesel is well over 15% when compared to a gasser in the same trim.

I would say if you want to escape carbon buildup then you will have to avoid BMW, Mercedes Bend for sure. Audi and Toyota I believe have any aux injector for gas engines. Maybe Mazda. I don't know...

IF you can find it. Many times the VW guys have some hook up at these parts stores and they'll scoop up all the oil. M1 ESP 5w30 (it's an advanced product btw) on sale maybe 2x year..forget about it....

Meh...these guys have been doing it on the N54 since 2008 or so. Walnut blasting is not new to them.

Funny thing about the dealer Castrol Edge OE is that I can rarely ever find another LL04 that is cheaper. M1 ESP is only on sale maybe 2x year.

Don't forget they also have to remove the valve train, add new coolant and oil. Walnut blasting is always preferable to opening up an engine.

Looks a little more involved when compared to the N55/N45 since our cylinder heads are different. Any word on the cost?

Yep these Mid/Low-SAPs (Acea Cx) oils don't clog the DPF as quickly as Ax/Bx oils would.

Technically any ACEA C3 oil would be fine in your car.
