Reading about valvetrain carbon deposits, a flawed EGR/PCV design and multiple head replacements over here has me slightly concerned. Does anyone here have a high mileage 335d that has managed to avoid these issues, or should I resort to the thinking that these are issues I will eventually have to deal with during ownership?
I'm also in the market to purchase a 335d with the hope of keeping it for a long time without major and costly trouble. I'd too would like to hear from the high mileage owners.
