I don't get it why 335i gets all the hate? The major problems were HPFP and wastegate (both of which are covered by warranty till 100k miles). Other than that, its just a common sense of maintaining the car properly. moreover I think most of the HPFP problems have already been resolved.
My 335i has been bombproof- the only thing its gone to the dealer for is regular service such as oil change, spark plug change etc.
of course if your 335i is modded, all bets are off. But a stock 335i is pretty reliable these days as long as you dont cheap out when it comes to preventative maintenance.
