What to watch out for....

Looking at buying a '07 335ix. It has 74k mi and seems to have well taken care of...

What things should I be looking out for with the 335ix? Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Typical 335i problems, turbos including wastegate rattle, make sure recalls are done, hpfp. Make sure you have a PPI (Pre-Purchase Inspection) done by a reputable dealer or indy shop that specializes in BMW's.

Make sure it's an xi and not an ix.

jk But in all seriousness, like deluxe said, do a PPI and make sure the turbos are in good shape.

Make sure it's not an enthusiast who just parted his car out and put it back to stock. Hopefully its some a lady or yuppie. Feel them out
