The check was for $32k.

I could have walked away but then got a sweet 2011 335i and I love this car!

Cheers!
Is this only if you've purchased the car brand new? So if I purchased my 335xi used and the pump went out multiple times would BMW do the same or is it only for the 1st owner?

I talked to my SA and he said they wont change my HPFP until it fails and throws a code. But it's having very long starts and it's embarrassing. What can I do to get him to change it?

I told him that on the phone and he said there are no recalls showing for the car. I have heard of people getting it changed out of goodwill even with no codes showing, how do they get that done?

My 2010 335xi (E90) with 31k miles just recently had a HPFP failure, a week before the standard warranty expired.

I've recently noticed a noise coming from the passenger side foot well area. It's a hard sound to describe but it's quite noticeable.

I took it to BMW and they said they would need to replace the fuel pump and a fuel line. I'm not having any problems starting the car and there are no error lights, so I don't know if this is a problem related to this thread. Could the noise I'm hearing be the start of the problem?

I am currently looking into getting a 07-08 335i coupe.

I am looking for a car with less than 90K miles on it.


So lets say I get one and my fuel pump fails. Will BMW Warranty it? I wouldn't be the original owner, how does that work?

Thanks

All this whining about the hpfp

I just got mine done by the main dealer in Swindon and it cost me 570, which is nothing if you can afford a car like this, I'm glad that people post about the problem as then you know what it is then, but I wish they would be more explicit about the costs.
All the forum posts put me off getting it done when it first showed the signs, but now I wished I had got it done straightaway as it's no big deal. Damn the brake pads and discs nearly cost this to replace at the dealers.
It should definitely not put you off buying this car, even if you have to change it every 3 years or so, but then i expect bmw refund a fair bit back anyway.

2009 335i coupe Fuel pump failure

2009 e92 coupe fuel pump failed even after so called "replacement" from Boston area dealer. Car has 34,340 miles so it isn't as though car is driven alot.
Either the dealer falsified replacement documentation or replacement pump is faulty as well.

Would this HPFP problem cause my car to overheat?
