same premium gas as your 328, slightly lower mpg, but way more dust/cars left behind.

I'll save you the trouble of searching.

Don't do it, 335i's have major issues with turbos failing, you will have to replace your fuel pump 50 times. Headlights popping loose when it run over bumps. spark plugs need adjusting every 40 miles. You have to keep spare water pumps in the trunk because to break too. CEL coming on if you accelerate too hard. Just a money pit. But put JB4+ on it and you'll be smoking M3's all day long /End Sarcasm

^Whatever. OP, I've got a really clean 07 E92 for sale - none of the problems mentioned above, either.

Sounds like you my friend, have a lemon.

That or you are one of those people that believe everything they say on the the internet, your statement about MAJOR issues with turbos failing is inaccurate, asides from the common wastegate rattle which really doesn't affect your performance in any way bmw turbos are actually pretty reliable and like any other turbos eventually need to be serviced or replaced because believe it or not most turbos out there do need servicing at some point specially if you throw on a jb4 to beat m3s all day/Not done with sarcasm.

Fuel pump issues, sure they are common which is why BMW addressed this and will replace them for free every time with no cost to you and likely a loaner vehicle which then again it implies no trouble to you up unto 120k.

Water pumps just in like any other car hit the shitter after a certain period of time, and with am extended warranty that will cost you upwards of $1400 you can have that covered as well as many other things that will break after time just like any other car (i.e starters, alternators etc etc) so believe it or not even BMW has come up with a water pump that lasts forever or even more so a car that something doesn't break on every so often!/End of Sarcasm.


So if you are one of those people who expects to give a car its required maintenance and then some(if you beat on it here and there) i say go for it, a 335 is such an upgrade in so many aspects and i think maybe 1 in 10 people out there regret doing it and that probably is because their car is a lemon, not well maintained or constantly abused. You'll never look back, i promise and if you're anything like me you'll make your wife/gf buy one too

Just do it ! I went from a 325ci to 328xi to 135i to 335i. You wont regret it. Just be certain to do a PPI with a local shop. Some N54 cars are a bit finicky. Buy a good set of Winters since you are in Jersey and you'll be fine.

If you have the money to burn then do it. These cars without a warranty are money pits.

if you want more power and the potential to tune the car to get some really good numbers and have the money to shell out to maintain it go for it, having owned both i will say the power differnece is very big
