    hello, so ive had my 335D for about 3 weeks now and i was well aware i will eventually have to put in def. I recently poured a 2.5 gallon in the active and it maybe only took about 1 gallon before it started spitting it out. i drove the car around trying to get this message to go away and it...

    Hi All, Second post on a Bimmer board so hopefully I can avoid toes. Did a few searches both in Google and using the forum search. Didn't find much that fit my issue with the F30/31. Had the car about 12 months. Drives well with the exception of stuttering on WOT (I'm assuming it is Transfer...

    Hello everyone how's it going? I own a 335d and it has the code P205C. What is this code? Everywhere I've searched shows something different. The car still runs very strong the power is always there. I don't really know what to do, I asked someone and they said I have to replace the entire DEF...

    I had my first service done to my 328d since getting it last November. The dealer put in 4 bottles of DEF according to the invoice. With only a little over 8k miles on the car that got me thinking if I should get an extra bottle and stow it in the truck just in case I am out and get the light...

    I have had my 335d for about a year now and I appreciate everyone's input on this forum. I have learned a lot about the car from your knowledge, and this is my first post. I recently got the "No Start" indicator light and tried to refill the DEF Fluid myself rather than being overcharged at...

    My first post here comes as a jaded car owner and forum user, so I must apologize in advance for the tone I'm sure to use. So, according to the rude guy at the local BMW dealer, my 2010 335d needs a new SCR tank which will run me $2400 for the part and installation. They offered no other...

    Does the diesel engine always draw DEF from the "active" tank first, then once it is empty, begin drawing from the "passive" tank? I went to top up the "active" tank at around 12,000 km and it hardly took any DEF from the bottle which surprised me. So I thought that perhaps it was drawing some...

    Hi, I was just wondering if anyone else had gotten the 'incorrect exhaust fluid' warning. My boyfriend bought his BMW maybe 5 months ago and although he's good with cars, he has never really worked on a diesel. When the exhaust fluid got low he looked up how to refill it and used BlueDEF. It...

    Today, just for grins, and because I am taking the car in for an oil change in a few days, I used my scan tool that came with the JBD and discovered two codes: 4687 - which is apparently Throttle Valve Actuator 474C - not sure But from reading a few threads on this site and Bimmerpost, it may...

    Does anyone have any experience with ECOTUNE out of Scotland that provides a DPF removal pipe and an ECU tune re-map on a US-spec 335D? They claim they've sold some to US customers and that the results are amazing... The major negative is that you have to physically remove your ECU and ship to...

    Hello, Was on a long commute yesterday and in the middle of the highway the Wrong DEF Fluid (with !) came on. The warning came also says "No Start On 999 mls". Then a little while after that warning, the SES light also came on. (what the...). I haven't been doing any DIY refilling, all my...

    While hopefully it will be a while before I'll need any DEF beyond what comes included with the maintenance plan, I wanted to know where I might buy it online just in case I couldn't find any locally. I found that Kruse NA, the maker of AdBlue for the american market, sells DEF directly on...
