Not to scare people but to help them. When buying a used 335 with over 50k miles, CPO is the minimum you should have or have some cash ready.

Spark plugs / fuel sensor replaced at 59k
Fuel injectors at 60k
Water pump at 61k
Fuel pump at 62k

Luckily I have CPO for another year.

Fuel pump is covered under the extended warranty anyway. Main concern is the water pump

Plugs should have been replaced under original warranty (40K or 45k - forget which). My injectors were replaced concurrently with the HPFP fix. OTOH, I have needed a transmission flush (plastic pan broke), and a new alternator and battery.

I don't think you can use any excuse. They will replace it if it fails.

Title should be changed to, "beware of buying a 335 without a warranty."

This. There are no issues on that list that would make an exended warranty worth it.

So given the fuel pump is already covered, you probably haven't fully covered the cost of the CPO yet but you're definitely close. And you still have a year to go. I will most certainly be getting a 7/70 extended warranty before the original runs out.

I just bought the extended warranty for another 5 years and covers the vehicle til 100k miles. Its not cheap but its worth it to me since the miles are low for an 07 (currently just hit 28k) so I am covered for quite some time. The only thing thats been replaced so far was the tranny seal pan that was leaking.

The warranty was not cheap but neither is the cost to fix our cars.

What type of extended warranty did you get? And how much? Thanks!

Not to sound ridiculous, but out of that whole list.

Spark Plugs should be general maintenance
Water pumps should be replaced roughly every 60k (especially when electric)

Fuel pump and level sensor would be the only thing that I see being out of the ordinary.

Any vehicle will need plugs changed from time to time, especially a performance oriented turbo vehicle. And also every vehicle will need to have the water pump replaced, granted mechanical ones will usually last a bit longer

If your evap goes out that's an easy $4k job done right. Add that to the list as it seems to be a common issue.

I think he means AC Evaporator. It's under the dash so there's lots of labor involved in replacing it.
