I've read good stuff about something called a "rheingold" but don't know firsthand.
Besides coding, will it do other things like fuel filter change (priming fuel lines), rear brake service, etc?

Ended up with a new EGR Cooler, Intake Manifold and MAF sensor.

Saw the bill, $3200 parts and labor. Obviously covered by the recall.

Time to plug in the tuner again, definitely feels a bit sluggish without it.

I wonder if that fault was caused by carbon buildup.

BMW 535d as well as gasoline models have an official EGR cooler recall. It has not been clear when to do the recall: before or after the thing fails. Dealers have not stocked parts at least in the recent past consistently.

Yes, but why? Does the part break, or does it get jammed with carbon and fail? That's what I wonder.

The EGR cooler literally cracks and starts leaking coolant.. thats what mine did.

I have had my 535d for almost 10 months. Just found out I have a cracked wheel, not covered by the CPO warranty. No damage to the wheel. Never had a cracked wheel on any other car. Clearly defective.

I had a hard time deciding between this car or a Passat buy back fixed car. Starting to think I made a mistake.

Back in the Jetta full time until I get a wheel.

There is a very long list of exclusions on the BMW CPO warranty, including wheels and DPF.

If you didn't know about BMWs and chronic wheel failure when you bought the car you didn't do a lot of research. The wheels aren't "defective," per se, it's the combination of low profile tires with run flats (read: stiff sidewalls) that stress, bend, and sometimes break the wheels. Find a matching set on CL or fb and buy them. You'll most likely be needing another at some point.

If it's any consolation, VW wheels bend pretty easily, too.

After 175,000 miles on two diesel BMW's recently, I have had 4 wheels damaged from hitting a curb and later running over a large 4x4 plank dropped from an adjacent 18 wheeler at 70 mph. The curb caused suspension components to be damaged (I think a control arm and maybe a hub) while the wooden plank destroyed one RF tire as well as cracking two wheels. I'm not sure the wheels are any different than other cast aluminum wheels. I didn't experience any tire bubbling or damage to the RFT Continentals otherwise to my knowledge.

I bought a spare tire kit and put conventional tires on. Rides a helluva lot better with them.
