I have a 328i but the biggest concern with the 335i is the fuel pump. It has been known to fail and BMW has been replacing the fuel pumps under a 10 yr- 100K miles recall. I believe once you past 100K miles you may be on your own. I hear the turbos can also be problematic but other than that I hear it's a fun and pretty good car. Keep up the normal maintenance and you should be ok. I would only use the dealer for some maintenance if it is CPO or under an extended warranty. Otherwise you need to find a good independent shop or DIY so you can save yourself some $$$$.
