N55 Long Cranks at 550 miles

My wife's '11 335i coupe has already had several long cranks and actually stalled out the other day while driving (auto). Anyone else having issues with their N55?

This is truly unacceptable. I'm at 2800 miles on mine and I've been trouble free (so far).

Really? Really... is it that these German companies have no fear of the US market and recalls.. like the Japanese currently are? My sister's Benz (SLK) was a POS too... why has there not been a consumer advocated uproar over these fricken continous and blatant problems?

Well we did know that they are putting the same HPFP in the N55...so it shouldn't be THAT much of a shocker...

I spoke to someone relatively high up in BMW Canada and they confirmed that the fuel pumps are similar and the problems will continue. So this is not surprising. There are revisions on the N55 to hopefully mitigate the problems but I wouldn't hold my breathe that this is 100% solved on the N55.

2300 mile on mine and hopefully never, maybe that's wishfull thinking. Also have 2008 N54 535i with 25000 so far that one is free of lonk-crank and HPFP problem as well.

Praying to the HPFP god every morning.

I still don't understand why there isn't a class action lawsuit against them at this point. They are still selling cars knowing full well the fuel pump is defective.

I guess the potential on of the engine outweighs the fuel pump problem
