2010 335d High pressure charger and HGR cooler problem - thoughts?

I have a 2010 335d with 60K miles. I live in the country of Georgia where diesel quality can sometimes be suspect. I was driving the other day and suddenly there was practically no power. Absolutely no low end power, and car finally lunges forward a bit after 50MPH or so. Screen displayed Engine Malfunction, Reduced Power and Service Engine Soon light lit up. Dealer found two codes:

DDE 4530 - reading online this is "charge air pressure control, control deviation". In the printout (which I am translating from Russian) it says "Regulation of supercharger pressure, degree of high pressure, deviation: too low pressure" And in the printout, it also says there is a code P0299 - they said high pressure charger failed due to low pressure. I don't know what difference is between these types of codes...

DDE 4873 - not sure what this is. In printout says "Discharge valve (well, not really sure how to translate the Russian here) of cooler of the system of recirculation of exhausted gases is defective or coefficient of useful operation is too high" And then there is also this P2457 code - they said this is an intercooler event due to it not cooling the gas enough. Ahhh, just realized this is referring to Exhaust Gas Recirculation...

These mechanics are not that skilled here. They simply reset the codes and told me to come back if the problem still persisted. Well of course the problem is still there.

Any idea what the root cause could be? Could bad diesel be the cause of it all and how would I go about knowing what to clean/replace, if it is indeed an issue with some valve or something that is having second, third order effects?

One other thing to mention: About a week before this problem, I filled up the adblue. I bought it here: http://www.amazon.com/Diesel-Emissio...626475-6235218 Could this be related?

Thanks in advance!

Brian

Russian? Guessing the Monterey you list as home base isn't in California. But pic looks like California.
Guess: turbo wastegate failure, open. You should go to a diesel forum, which this isn't, for detail.

Russian? Wha?

Maybe boost leak. Check all the air ducting as well as vacuum lines.

Water in the diesel could cause all manner of codes. Based on location and quality of fuel concerns, I would first rule out bad fuel. There is a fuel filter (about the size of a Red Bull energy drink canister) mounted close to the firewall (RHS if memory serves). Replace the filter and cut open the old one. If the old filter has water in it, you are probably looking at new fuel injection system (pump, rail, injectors, and, and, and) parts.

Yesterday I noticed that around 40 or 50 MPH, the car suddenly would deliver power. Today, it was 0-40 in about 20 seconds and then it just leveled off around 40 and would not go faster. Just wondering if this bit of info makes any of the suspected causes more or less likely. The car is at the shop now, but you know here in Georgia (country, not state), the mechanics are not experienced with diesels. Almost all BMWs here are gas. Too bad a I can't rent a German mechanic...

thanks,
Brian
