Hi, I have 22K miles on an early 2011 335d (Nov 2010 build). My car has traveled almost the same distance as yours. Except for the EGR recall, the car has had nothing done beyond routine maintenance. I know here in the states not all the dealers are proficient with diesels as they are not that common. Owner experience may vary from dealer to dealer.

The reason I posted this in the first place is because I'm experiencing a weird noise while traveling at constant speeds over 80 km/h (50 mph). I can't tell if the noise is coming from inside the engine or elsewhere but it sounds like a vibration or a build up and release of pressure at a very low freuency. The noise oscillates approximately every 1 second so I don't think the tires are the issue. As soon as I press or let off the accelerator the noise stops.

I have an appointment tomorrow with the dealer but I suspect it will be difficult to troubleshoot.

Wow man. You've had lots of trouble with your D.

I just pulled two codes on mine today after I got an "engine/malfunction" message on my screen or "limp mode" as most commonly called.

Mine is a "swirl flap actuator" issue and I'm taking it in tomorrow.

Shame you are so far away or I'd scan the codes for you.

Well I went to the dealer today and I took their mechanic out for a drive. Guess what? No noise of course. We went back to the dealership and he put it up on the hoist to have a look at the steering and suspension. Nothing appeared to be wrong. Problem could be alignment causing premature tire wear but I was led to believe that this isn't a warranty item. Hmmm.
He did notice that my front RFT tires are feathered on the outsides which could be from several other causes so I really have no argument since the tires are not new. I was quoted about $2200 CDN to replace all 4 tires including balancing and labour. Model is Bridgestone 225/R40R18.
Having a US car in Canada, I'll likely look for new tires while down getting the maintenance work done. I'll browse through this site for tire advice as I'm certain it is a popular topic.
Thanks for all of your replies! Much appreciated.
