So, does it appear that the DPF and the SCR are perhaps controlled by the same ECU?

My fault started with the DPF but then they changed out the SCR Module.

The BMW extended maintenance and warranty are looking much more attractive.

I'm at 2 years with 30.5k miles, so right on track to complete 50k before reaching 4 years.

My D's 2nd anniversay was on 21 Nov and it has travelled over 65,000 KM (40,400 Miles) without any major mishap other than the passenger side rear view mirror had to be changed 'cos of grinding sound when open/close.

At this rate the warranty will be over in 4~5 months time.
I did purchase extended warranty to 160,000 KM (100,000 Miles) for 4 years when I bought the D as I knew I was going to be putting a lot of miles on it.

After that extended warranty is over I guess I'll have to decide what to do.
Hopefully the 320D or 535D will make it over by then.

If the D stays trouble free I might keep it since the 335d is unlikely to be available in the F30.

That's just a little more than me - I've got nearly 39K and it's anniversary was Nov 2 IIRC. I will be buying an extended warranty - should carry me through 100K. Didn't know we had (almost) twins!

I've had one problem with the SCR injector, and one with the fuel injectors getting un-calibrated. Other than that, normal maintenance.
