I am ready to pull the trigger on the 335D but want to make sure it doesnt have the exhuast smell in the cabin issue.

Any thoughts?
Diesel smell only at the fuel station
Morning starts under cold weather also bring very mild smell. But it vanishes in less than a minute once the catalitic converter raises its temp a bit and def fluid comes in.

Absolutely no diesel in the cabin.
By the way the air recirculation button on the steering is a very nice feature. It cleans the cabin air of any smell very quickly. Kids farts included
