A few guys are using the torquepro app for the boost gauge function angst others. You could also install an a-pillar gauge or center console gauge setup (I would suggest the latter). I know I've seen these on the other e90s if not the diesel.

They have one that mounts as the drivers side HVAC vent which looked cool and stealthy.

Car above is a 335i not 335d.

Where does one tap boost vacuum on 335d?

Pretty much anywhere except off the brake booster.
