My other concerns with the 335is is if they have resolved the wastegate rattle, fuel injector issues and ticking engine noises that showed up with the 335i for years.

I wish I someone knew. I guess only time will tell.

Ohh yeah, how about the fuel pump? Is that still an issue?
The 335is uses the exact same N54 engine that has been used for years (with the exception of an additional radiator and programming to give it more HP and TQ), so it is just as likely to have the same issues. Shoot, even the new N55 uses the same HPFP as the N54, so it's not likely there will be any improvement in reliability.
