Sorry to hear that you had such a hard time with the 335 but glad you remained in the BMW family. I myself have a 335i that I bought used. I'm not a wealthy person but this is my 5th BMW and I've learned a few things along the way.

1) Never expect a used BMW to run perfect unless you do some after purchase preventative maintenance.

2) Never trust a carfax report. Always get the car inspected by your mechanic or even the closest BMW dealer.

3) Never trust a used car salesman no matter how honest he/she seems. My experience is that the will buy a car at auction, check the bare minimum, have someone they know inspect and pass the car, sell the car and wash their hands of it. Some won't even put gas in it for you to make it home.

4) Find an indy that specializes in BMW.

These cars are truly fantastic machines that drives like no other. That is, when they're running. Anyway, hope you're enjoying the F30. I hope to purchase one when I get tired of the E90.
