Customer Question

I own a 730D 2001 BMW, with a little over 100,000 miles, in very good condition.
Recently it is not performing very well going up long motorwayhills, & I note some 'oily' deposits/drops on the rear bumper after a long journey . Up to now the car has never given me any problems.Could there be a soot problem with the Catolitic converter, or were DPF filters & emission filters or converters fitted on those older models.
