So you're saying the DPF failed because it was "full"? Were the differential pressure sensors throwing faults because it was saying the DPF was full/clogged? If so, that could've absolutely been due...

When the previous owner got rid of it how long did this car sit? Did it sit in a lot waiting for auction for a while?

Walmart's Motile M141 (https://tinyurl.com/Motile-M141) is also a great option. It's been on sale for $200 a couple of times ($209 right now) and is very upgradeable.

2016 is the first year for LCI, so that and later are good for updates BMW made to those vehicles (especially if you have xDrive).

I wouldn't go with the F34 springs shocks. If you don't know the spring rate you don't know how that will change your ride height. Seems like an awful lot of $ for a "guess." The F34 also can have...
