Made a post a few months back about reoccurring issue with start up failure and long crank with my iS (Cold and warm start). Car is back at service today for the 5th time in 4 months due to same problem. We'll see what happens this time...

Isn't that qualified for lemon law after the 3rd failure to fix? (depending on state)

I had the same issue. It never threw any codes and the dealer said they couldn't do anything if it wasn't producing a code. They eventually ran a diagnostic on it and found it was an injector issue. The most current BMW software is far less sensitive to long cranks. Its bs to save them $. I've ranted on this before...

If you really like your car, push push push until they fix it right. However, if your purchasing and not leasing consider how all of these service visits could potentially affect your resale value. You have more than enough service history to pursue a BMW buy back or lemon and get nearly all your $ back. ...my 335is is my second 335. BMW bought back my '08 335

I'm purchasing the car, Is it worth it to go through all of this trouble? As much as I like the car?

Its definitely worth it. The buyback process is very easy. They offered me a lowball cash settlement first to keep the car and when I declined, they came back with the buyback deal. Your doing BMW a favor by not lemoning the car AND your saving yourself the 7-20% attorney fee. I posted awhile back how they figure the buy back price. If its something you're considering do some searching and see what others on the forum got. I know it works differently on leases, but still a good deal.

Sorry for going so far off topic on an excellent thread. I love my 'is' and plan on keeping it for a while, but if you have legitimate issues with you car, it should be handled properly. It appears BMW isn't effectively handling issues with these engines.

Does the "IS" Semi Tuned have problems with its Dual clutch transmission slipping Gears?

Hey guys,

I'm struggling mightily between a 2013 335is and the F30 335. Did any of you compare between the two, and what pushed you ultimately to the is? I'll be doing ED in late May/June and I'm a little concerned with my brand new is being outdated by the 4 series by the time it gets back to the US. Any of you guys worried about this, or is the grin from diving the car impossible to wipe off regardless?

I'm comparing the 335is 6mt basically loaded vs the 335i Msport 6mt similarly equipped.

I definitely think the IS because of the differences between the engines (n54) and (n55) which is in the 335

I am in a similar situation. My 335is comes in this week. I have always been a coupe guy, but considered a F30 just because it is a new body, but I have to stick with the coupe. The 4 series won't be out until the fall and who knows when an Msport package or a 335is successor will be out, which is what I would want anyway. Plus as soon as it is released there will be no deal on them, and I am getting an unbelievable deal on my 335is. So I am going to take the 335is, drive it a year or so and then eventually get into some variant of a 4 series coupe probably next spring. I hope this helps.

Here's a quick photo of the car on winter duty wheels; I think I need spacers in the rear. What kind of winter setups are people running?

Your sideskirts look amazing on your color, did you modify them to make em fit or just bolted them on?

335is

I got the custom OEM skirts from LTMW and I have Gintani carbon fiber add ons attached. I love the aggressive look the two of them combined give to the car. They were installed by LTMW, so they were modified to fit

In the begining during the breakin period, depending on driving habits, there should be some sort of slippage.

DCT controller learns driving habits and applies more pressure to the clutches when "needed".

If you are a person that 90% of the time is a cool mo dee cruiser then all of a sudden want to drive like a bat out of hell then yes you will experinece slippage

If you are 70%+ enthusiast driver, more torque is being used so the DCT will adapt to these demand.

When adding more power, you have to let the DCT adapt and recognize the new torque/hp. You will expereince slippage at first then the adaptive function will adjust.



SO everyone should keep in mind, clutch pressure is applied based on detection of torque. We have a passive DCT clutch system

I am experencing the same thing, glad you got yours fixed. I would get long cranks, or rough start ups also. Been holding off taking it to the dealer. Only one time it threw a code but I cleared it like an idiot though



Funny though I have no problems with driving performance. Its only on the cold start ups after the car has rested for more than an hour
