Buying a used 2007+ 335i coupe

I just wanted to know if there are any problems I should look for that are limited to only certain cars. I already know about the HPFP problems.

Any other useful information would be great

Try to get an 08 or up. Longer CPO time, comes with an oil cooler, and just better overall if you can get one.

All the coupes came with an oil cooler.

There is an injector recall for build dates from 4/02/07 to 10/31/08 (see attached).

BMW extended the warranty on the turbos to 5 years/62,000 miles, but doesn't give a shit about wastegate rattle if there is no loss of boost.

Thanks guy I know about the oil cooler I'm looking at 3 coupes 2 07's and 1 08. Only 1 of the 07s has it and the 08 does as well of course. I've been doing some reading and have read about the waste gate rattle so when I go test drive the cars I'll be sure to listen for it.

Unfortunately I'm a college student so a CPO is out of the question I'll most likely have to buy one with high mileage.
