I've had both a sedan and coupe (sold the sedan to a friend and got the coupe) for over a year, both 2007's and neither one has had a problem. Got 98k on the coupe

I purchased a used 2008 335i and whenever the engine revs past 4,000 RPM, it triggers the half-shaded engine warning light, goes into reduced power mode and runs awful. It clears up when I shut the engine down and restart, but returns if RPMs exceed 4,000 RPM again.

I brought it to my local dealer and they refused warranty work, stating that they couldn't find any history of an HPFP recall outstanding on this vehicle (they told me that there should be an entry if the voluntary recall was not yet initiated by any owner) and therefore the HPFP must have been replaced. Without any documentation showing that the replacement was within the past 2 years, they would not honor any further HPFP warranty work on the vehicle.

I was under the impression that it doesn't matter how many times it's been replaced, if it (and any replacements) break within the 10 year or 120,000 period, it must be replaced under warranty (mine's got 105k on the odo).

I shot off an e-mail to the customer.relations at BMW NA, as well as sending a copy of the BMW NA letter circulated to customers in 2010 that detailed the warranty extension to the service advisor that rejected the warranty work (well, his service manager told him it was rejected so he was just the messenger).

I'm really P.O.'d presently, especially if the warranty is indeed exactly what I just explained. The quote for replacing the HPFP is $1,200 USD: $560 for the pump, and the rest for labor.

The failure of the fuel tank can be the reason for major accident but thank God it came into notice of news reporter and correct action is taken by the company. But I wonder why always actions were taken after the news? Why the company do not assess all their accessories of the car properly. BMW is a well known brand and to maintain it's good repo in the market the company must check each and every BMW parts properly.

Can anyone provide more details of what the "software update" I read about that may accompany an HPFP recall replacement actually does?

I am experiencing HPFP symptoms (engine warning light past 3,500-4,000 RPMs followed by reduced power, and what sounds like the "long crank" issue at startup) but according to the dealer, my car is out of warranty.

So I'm going to have to replace the HPFP myself ($300 from online retailers) and need to know if I still have to bring the car in for this "software update." I had discussed this with my service agent and he said that "most of the time a software update is not needed." BTW, his quote if they replaced it out of warranty was $1,250.

Just bought used 335i

I just bought a very nice 2007 335i from an Audi dealer, but with no service history (I did get an incredible deal). How do I find out if the HPFP is the original, and if the recall is only for original owners?

Bring it (or your key, specifically) to your local BMW dealer and the service department should be able to run a service/recall history. If the HPFP has not been replaced, there should be an entry indicating a recall in effect.
