I realize that if you take quick sharp turns, you will get the smell in during the day.
They did see soot under the hood and around the coolant and were also able to smell the diesel in the air ducts, filters etc.
I did not make any suggestions to them about the EGR issue, so I am sure that they did their due diligence before going changing it.
Also, they kept the vehicle for 2 days, so they had the opportunity to test it the next morning.
Thanks. Hoping for same result. I will suggest they change the filters when they give me a call to update. Don't mind 2 days; the 328i coupe m-sport loaner makes things very, very right.
