My 335d arrived!

After only 5 weeks of waiting, I picked up my E92 335d Space Gray with 189 wheels (I know a very popular color/wheel combination) today!!

I left my 6 year old E46 330d (225hp/500Nm) with 318000km on the counter, at the dealer.

I must say, what a difference with my good old E46!! Styling, interior, equipement, performance,.... everything!!

When it comes to any purchase, I always want to try it, whether it's shoes, phone, ... so also a car. But this time, I ordered a car that I didn't drove, not even saw in real!! And after 2 week of waiting, I became a little nervous, unsure about the color, the wheels, everything...

But when I saw the beauty, no more doubts!

So what are my first driving experiences?
I was amazed about all the features that are in the car: navi, CA, VC, BT,... I was only used to a small OBC on the E46... So it will take a while before getting to know them all.
Then the actual driving: after only 70km the 1st night, I'm not yet familiar with the shifting paddles and the way the autotranny works in manual mode. But give me a week, and that will be history.
One thing that I miss is an oil- or water temp. meter. Isn't that on the US version? I surely would feel more comfortable to push her once I see she's on temperature.

I know this thread is worthless without pics but I'm sure she will be easier to take pics once we know eachother

Well my dealer told me the rpm redline would be variable depending on your engine temp. But after reading some threads here, it isn't. That's a big disadvantage, but surely that will be the only one!

Anyways congrats

You're probably stlill breaking it in but how does it compare with the 330d?

Very popular color combo too ... you're not from around Antwerp by any chance?

Congrats! That must be really awesome car. The torque of that engine must be really amazing.

There is th oil temp gauge in petrol 335i but not in diesel.

Post some pictures of her when she is willing to pose.

I'm from around Leuven...

So after 1 day, I drove approx 300km. The dealer told me to go eay and not pass the 3500 rpm... I didn't ... but at 200kmh you're close to 3500 rpms

Now I really have to read the manual to know all the possibilities in the car

hey, from Leuven? That means we'll see each other sooner or later... :-) Just let me know when you have any questions about some of the nice/handy features of your car... I have mine for almost a year now. I'm not claiming to be an expect, but am trying to find each and every detail :-)

I have a 335d and after 2 months I had some exhaust smell coming in through the vents so I popped the hoode to have a look around the engine.

While looking around I noticed that the smell was very intense around the turbos so I has a closer look with a flashlight and I noticed a lot of oil was leaking out around the turbo.

I took it to the shop and they replaced the turbos.

Now I still smell exhaust from time to time and I hear a lot of ticking noises around the turbo and the exhaust.

I bought a carbon monoxide detector which goes off every few minutes...

not too happy with this car...

335d turbo and exhaust problems Help! I had some exhaust smell coming in through the vents so I popped the hooded to have a look around the engine.

While looking around I noticed that the smell was very intense around the turbos so I had a closer look with a flashlight and I noticed a lot of oil was leaking out around the turbo.

I took it to the shop and they replaced the turbos.


This was a simple fix but the bigger problem is the exhaust leak around the engine! This is a hazardous and poisonous problem that can be hard to detect and fix...

I will post a picture where I will point out the spots where oil was and is leaking! I cant figure out where the exhaust smell is coming from but I know for sure it is coming from the left side of the engine around the turbos... I don't know why it is not constant, it only smells from time to time, usually at low RPM under 2500.

Also I open the oil cap on the engine and I noticed a lot of white smoke inside the engine. Is that normal in a diesel engine? (this is the first diesel that I ever owned so I am not so familiar with this type of engine)

here is a picture of the 335d engine with description of the problem areas that I discovered.
