Other than that I love the car, the diesel engine is a beast.
BTW your dealer's techs obviously know less about the 35d DEF system than anyone reading this thread. Anyone who has to "refill the exhaust fluid tank all the time" has a dysfunctional DEF system or dealer. In most cases, I'd bet on the later
