I can find no information in the BMW pubs exempting the Diesel engine. so what's the true story. did I screw up by believing the sales and advertizing pitch??? BMW 135d

Y'know Dp, you coulda had a rogue advisor!

Recently had a SA go, suddenly, vitriolic when I joked I'd bet him a dime I could read proprietary BMW codes.

That was San Rafael, and I greatly prefer Bill Arnold's service there, but I've had other SA's that had their head on straight.

The rub: I do read proprietary codes....anyone can.

I'd go up a rung....confirm with a manager. Get back to us! Bay Area people want t'know if you're treated right.
