2008 BMW 3 Series 335i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)
Originally, the 335i was fun to drive. It was quiet, quick, and fun. At 4,000 miles, the high pressure fuel pump failed, showing engine malfunction readings. All work was of course covered by BMW. Again, at 14,000 miles, the second high pressure fuel pump failed. The car now has 40,000 and is on its 3rd pump. Since replacement of the original, the car has less power, vibrates, and has an obvious computerized issue where the tight steering feel comes and goes. With repeated visits to the dealer, I am continuously told there are no found issues.
IDrive, for sure is the best feature on the car, with the integrated iPod controls. The exterior sleek styling is also what got my initial attention of this car. As for any BMW, the drive (handling and stability) is amazing.
The inline 6 twin turbo engine needs to be revamped in order to resolve its high pressure fuel pump issues.
