No more smell of diesel in the cabin.
Dropped my 35d this morning. The foreman was not in, so there was not attempt to reproduce the issue with me on site.

Did they reproduce the smell? Or simply went and just replaced the EGR?

The smell is hard to reproduce, as it occurs in the morning and at any point during the day. Sometimes it feels like there's a cloud of fumes lingering under the hood, and at certain points comes out. Very random.

P.S. Got a gourgeous black saphire MSport 328i coupe as loaner.
