Reliability of the 335i?

I may be trading my '06 330i for a 335i, but I'm interested to hear how the turbos are holding up now that the model has been out a few years, as well as any other reliability issues that people have encountered.

Waste Gate and HPFP problems. If you do a search, you will find dozens of threads.

Just bought a 2007 335 with a build date of 10/06 and it had 16,800 miles. Within two weeks of having it the HPFP failed, then three weeks later I had a steering column lock error and they updated the software on the car. That is all, and was all covered. Love the car!

07/08 build with 5,500 miles. I have a radio problem (other than no base) when I hook up my IPOD. The sound jumps up and down and drives me nuts. Otherwise, not one problem. I had it in Germany for 3-months and ran the crap out of it. I am very happy with it. Getting JB3 this week.

31,000 miles.. I've had the car in for a fuel pump replacement twice. But that issue is very minimal compared to how much I enjoy my 335!

35,500 with 05/07 build. Very reliable so far, just changing brakes due to squeaking, but that's about it.

1/07 with 27k. One of my VANOS solenoids just went out, and I don't think my little exhaust flapper works properly.
