I didn't know if you were in Worcester MA or VT, but here is a link for the MA lemon law site:

http://www.mass.gov/?pageID=ocatermi..._law&csid=Eoca

You definitely qualify for a lemon law case simply on the fact that you're car was out for 3 weeks on the 3rd fuel pump. Find out @ what mileage the first fuel pump went out. If it's before 15k miles, then you're certainly guaranteed a victory against BMW.

Write them another letter using the sample letter in the link and send it Certfied w/a return receipt. While you're waiting for a response, find a good lawyer. Good Luck!

Lemon law it. Don't do it yourself.
I did it myself and outcome was good, but now I think of it, I should've done it through the lawyer and asked for better return.

BMW buy back my 535i about half year ago due. I simply call the BMWNA customer service and tell her all the story of what happen and probably only a month they send me a letter via e-mail for buying back the car. This process has nothing to do with the dealer at all is what she said to me. I replaced fuel pump 3 or 4 times, replace the whole nav unit once, wood trim pop out once, misfire cylinder once. This all happened within the first 4 months i bought the car and it was brand new.

Try to say stuff like, you don't feel safe with the car anymore. It could be life threatening thing, etc.

I have had a ridiculous amount of problems with my 07 335.. I have had replaced 4 fuel pumps in less than 15k miles. Originally, I thought the fuel pump problems were caused by modifying the car, so I went stock. Even then my fuel pump went again and again. (I have the service records if that helps at all)
My friend recently purchased his 335 less than 2 months back. Hes been stock without even a single mod as to change the grills or anything. He just hit 1200 miles, but also hit his 3rd fuel pump.
I currently have 19k (8/1/09) and have now gotten intake camshaft position timing - over-retarded.. Ive been stock for over 9k miles now, and it seems like nothings changing.
I am truly jealous of the cases i hear with people not going through a fuel pump with even 50k miles. I found it extremely hard to believe especially with my car acting up the way it did, and still is. The 335 is a brilliant car minus its achilles heel. As for now i am truly done with the 335, good luck to all those who have not ran across a problem like this.

The funny thing is i never knew about this lemon law. I recently heard of it through my barber two days ago! I hope i have a good enough case for the lemon law, and maybe i can hire the same lawyer you did Blackimpact.

unfortunately it's too late to do a buyback on your car...i'm on 29.5k miles with my 07 e92 and still on the first fuel pump.

Your car's a lemon based on the information you provided. We can talk on the side and i'll help you get out of that car.

Incorrect, both him and his friend are qualified to file for a lemon law case. 3+ fuel pumps, less than 2 years or 18k miles since the 1st fuel pump went. Open and shut case.

I am also in a similar situation with the fuel pump, if it goes one more time. Car was bought in NJ on June 2008.
Replaced at following approximate mileage:
1. 3000
2. 7000
3. 11000

But I didn't get a chance to send in the letter before the third replacement, because I didn't know that was the problem and the dealer just fixed it without notifying me about the issue. So my question is how much wait does the letter have? I called consumer affairs and they said you have to send the letter. I would hate to have to wait for it to go for the fourth time. Also should I wait for the pump to go again or do you think bmw would be open to buying back the car now?

BTW Can anyone recommend any lemon law lawyers in central jersey they have dealt with or heard good things about?

Thanks

I'm in the same boat right now with my 08 335. I have a lemon law attorney handling the situation and am awaiting the outcome. My car was in the shop 7 times/50 days within a year.

I wonder if any of these posters on her suggesting you hire an attorney are actually attorneys priming the pump?

You guys blithely suggest to people to get a "lemon lawyer", BUT THEY DON"T WORK FOR FREE do they? or is it do you?

Seems to me this is something that can be handled very well indeed, sans attorney!

BMW customer service is useless, even a LL demand letter to them is useless unless you send it to their legal department.
Get a lawyer, I had to even though there is no doubt my car is flocked up beyond repair

I'm not a lawyer. Lemon law lawyers don't work for free. They work on a no-fee basis. Meaning, if you win, they charge BMW their attorney fees. Lose and they don't charge you anything. At least that is how my lawyer is handling it.

You can try and handle this on your own, but in my opinion, the outcome will be greater with a lawyer.

The letter does not represent your whole case. The fact that you went through 3 fuel pumps qualifies you for a lemon law case. Don't wait for your pump to go again even though it will eventually. BMW will not want to buyback your car now. The only way you're going to successfully negotiate a buyback is through a lawyer. I have one that I am using now that I can recommend to you. PM your email address so we can talk.

Im not certain about this, but I have heard now that the fuel pumps have been redesigned and all the replacements currently are with the new fuel pump.

I am currently in the process of purchasing a BMW buyback 335 that had gone through 3 pumps and when BMW had it, they changed out the new pump and have no longer had the issues... Anyone else know anything about it?

Untrue, there are quite a few people on this board with post March 09 build dates that have had their HPFP fail, IIRC.

two days after my second HPFP, I now have cold start shivers???? WTF is causing this now?? ANYONE know????

Who knows? Does it really matter at this point? These cars are garbage. BMW dropped the ball on this model. Just get your money back.

Is the person telling you this the salesperson trying to sell the car? All I gotta say is I feel really bad for the guy who is going to buy my car after I settle with BMW. A BMW buyback is a LEMON! So what if you're saving a few thousand? You're buying an expensive piece of junk.
