Yes, details please! I've been saying all along if I needed carbon cleaning one or 2 times in the car's life, as long as it was under $1000 USD for the service, I can accept that (not thrilled but accepting).

I got the SES light again last week when the car was at 79900 Kilometers and 8 days from the original new car warranty running out. I did not lose power, I just saw the SES light. I noticed sub par fuel economy in the past few weeks and a bit of vibration at idle but power was there. I took it to the BMW and they said Carbon build up is in intake and Cylinder head, they cleaned the intake and since the parts were in back order for Cylinder head (Gasket and other parts) they game me the car back till they get the parts.

From the look of it they will open the Cylinder head and clean and put it back. The service advisor is a cool guy and I was able to get some information out of him.
All 335Ds will have the Carbon build up at some point, he said most will get it from 70K to 100K (kilometers) and they need cleaning. he said none of the cars after cleaning have come back for this issue again (I guess they will at some point)
They are doing it free and under warranty for me but he said after warranty the same cleaning job will be around $500-$600

Long story short heavy Traffic and idling is a killer for these cars, I do see traffic half of my day. Anyway I am waiting on the parts and will get the car back to BMW.

At this point I am ok spending $500-$600 every 80K but anything beyond would be a stretch.
What dealer and SA? I've had great service from Parkview and Narith is a great SA as well.

I m having it done at Town + Country in Markham and Andrew is a great advisor.
He said it is a 3 hour job plus the gaskets.

I just bought a 2009 with 76,000 miles on it, the day after I drove it SES, Reduce Engine Power, limp mode, had to replace the intake manifold, and have the cylinder head dipped and cleaned, total bill was $5500 and change, bmw kicked in $1000 the dealership drove it 70 miles, and told me it was fixed. I drove it a total of 39 miles before the engine locked up. The #6 injector failed supposedly (they didn't replace the injectors, the injectors worked fine when the mechanic drove it and the valet drove it) and flooded the #6 cylinder and piston causing the rod to bend and crack the block, the #6 piston is 6 mm lower than it should be. Just spent $5500 to fix it and now I need a new motor ($16,000 - $17,000)
