I gotta do some searches on the forums, but I would *hope* that they would have a newer/improved part and not just put the same crappy one in.

in the case of this car, it doesn't matter how many of them break, they are covered up to 6 years 100k miles.

Check with PA lemon laws and see what it says. The 335 is a great car otherwise but I couldn't justify a 50k+ car that I can't rely on and makes me nervous when traveling long distances. I almost got rear-ended by a car going 80 when my pump died on me switching lanes and during hard acceleration. This doesn't happen to every 335, but there is a good chance that it may happen. I'm really surprised that BMW has not issued a recall for this.

FYI if you are afraid of a HPFP failure then N54 equipped cars are not for you - get a 328 or an M3 or maybe the new Turbo. If you want to have the security of being able to lemon a car - then buy a new one. If you want a low mileage, very clean, well maintained AW/CR with premium, sport, heated seats, ipod and 100K warranty, this is the car for you.

After about 2 months the car finally shipped today. Bittersweet.. Glad to get this deal done with but very sad that I don't have the time or money to keep such a great car in the stable..

Thanks again to all the e90post folks for the interest!
