Did not read codes myself. Dealer gave me following, 20D1, 29D2, 299CC, 29F2.
There must have been more; reading codes yourself is way to go.

Long (& expensive) rough idle at 70k E61

After my last post a couple of weeks ago, I had one bad misfire on cold start, and could smell unburnt gasoline coming from exhaust. Took it in to BMW dealer: codes 29D1 (#5) 29D2 (#6) 299CC and...

What's wrong with this for US BMW owners? Two wagons win awards; the fantastic BMW 530d Touring is not available here. BMW NA please bring the 5-series back; 535 would go down a treat.

What's included?

Does the expansion tank include the float and level indicator? My indicator has 'gone'; I suspect (hope) its at the bottom of the tank and too big to go down the return hose.
Thanks for sharing.

I wonder if US will get the Touring, or is BMW giving up midsize wagon market to Mercedes?
Less weight and better interior good. I still love (and drive) E61.

Just had sensor replaced; covered under extended warranty. Part $200, labor $200, plus oil drained, so sensible to change with filter at same time. Prior to that, driving hard (up to 6 k rpm several...

This sounds a lot like errors caused by low battery voltage - check many other posts on this forum, its a great resource for education about BMWs.
Good luck.

I'd be a happier camper if 335 wagon was allowed. Loss of space would be a compromise compared to E61, but I'd get in the line 6 and could do ED. I hope you enjoy the 4 cylinder: it has a amazing...
