Do the 335d in Canada have a different EGR system from the US?
Running a tune?

Congratulations. I ordered a little USB/PC powered endoscope off Amazon that just arrived last night. Planning to have a look at my intake this weekend.

So they finally removed the intake manifold... There is no or almost none carbon build up ( only a bit dirty). They scoped it in front of me and showed me the valve and I took pictures and video with my Iphone 5!
I guess that I'm happy
No carbon build up

Well if you drive hard, the engine will run hotter and cleaner.

My N54 ran amazing, and didnt really have much problems. But we had plenty of people come in with 535s (generally an older driver) with many fuel system problems, injector problems, carbon build up.

I tracked my 335i, so it was getting driven quite hard, guess even though I was using it to its full abilities, I was saving its life!

Of course you can. Go to this page with your safari and post reply (advanced mode), there you choose "manage attachments" and "upload file from your computer", then "choose existing" or something like that, choose your picture from your picture gallerie, choose "upload" and "close this window" and Presto!

What's your average MPG for daily driving? It will give a good idea how much you push your engine, as others are saying to drive the motor hard at times to clean carbon.

Maybe a separate thread should be made where we each state:

Model year
Mileage
Mpg on the car
Avg speed on the car
Carbon build up issue yes or no?

I think those are some of the key factors which are relevant to this issue. If anyone can think of anything to add to this list. Let me know I'll start the thread tomorrow.
