What do you think Chris on this?
Hard to say Axel, so many variables to consider as to what is causing the issue in otherwise low mileage vehicles e.g. driving style, fuel quality, timing of ecu/egr reprograming/replacement etc. Needless to say the issue, although rare, is cause for me to have some level of concern.

I agree with the cause for concern. I wonder if we could gather enough D owners to send a group correspondence to BMWNA so that they would not be just dealing with single owners, with the idea of putting some pressure on them to resolve the issue or at least find some palliative remedies. They might be worried if BMW CCA members or at least an organized group of owners was complaining right when they are just preparing to announce their next round of USA bound diesels.
