Never again!!! They e'ffin suck and didn't wanted to cover some of the repairs below, buyers BEWARE!!! I had really bad luck with this car; I got the car with about 55k miles...

***My recommendation to you would be getting a lower mile 335i unless your buddy has good exp. with 335's and/or not scared to go under the hood and do things... BMW req alot of speciality tools as well as a BMW scanner... Regular OBD scanner are useless for 335's

Overall I loved the car and didn't want to let it go, but now I love my LCI better
- 2 water pumps replaced (around 80k and 100k)

- 3 Thermostat replaced + programming (70k, 80, 100k)
- 2 HPFP dealership replaced (88k, 92k)
