Mein Auto: 2014 535d M-Sport
While in for the complimentary filter/oil change, the DEF was "topped up" even though the car was not
calling for it/ ie.: no SES or reminder messages. The car took most of a 1/2 gal. bottle. I am not sure
which tank the fluid went into; passive, active or both, but it went in and there was no charge--

Miles - about 6500. No other issues with the car. By the way, I "opted out" of the software reflash
on the books for the some older 335d's. I will get it eventually of course. But the car is running so well
and getting very good mileage, I figured "if it ain't broke.." I know some of us have seen lower MPG's
after the flash, and some haven't. Not a huge deal, eh? I also did not have the
time needed for the re-flash, which the Advisor mentioned could be a couple of hours...
