Anybody have idea? I am picking this up in a week and still have options not to buy if this car have serious problem.
I don't see anything too serious here for a 335.
The High Pressure Fuel Pump replacements are unfortunately normal for the 335's as they had numerous problems with it. BMW claims to have finally fixed it with the -446 number part and a software update (both have already been done to the car, items 2 and 4 on your list).
I think 1, 6, 7 are low mileage oil changes (BMW has a 15k/1year oil change interval, whichever comes first).
But the service history appears clean for a 335, no unusual problems other than the fuel pump. You'll just need to be aware that it could fail again, but warranty will take care of it.
