2007, 08, 09 335 Model Year Differences

i searched and didn't find what i was looking for. Anyway I'm shopping for a 335i coupe and would like to know what the model year changes included. I haven't been able to find a decent list of what was changed and how it affected performance. Thanks for your replies.

Flacke is an unknown quantity at this point
I don't know of any changes that would have changed performance. BUT, if I was buying a 335 Coupe I would check if the car has the oil-cooler installed.
If it does not have one [I believe early cars didn't] I would install the DINAN oil cooler designed for the car. Its about twice the size of stock part and cools very well. If you don't think you will drive it hard or if you are in a cool climate you may just get the stock cooler. Then, enjoy the car knowing that your oil is within specs.for temp.

2007 335's do not have an oil cooler stock. You can purchase kits and have them installed. I know dinan makes a kit as mentioned that fits without any major modifications.

As far as other changes, the newer the better IMO. 335's are plagued with high pressure fuel pump issues. There has recently been a recall, but who knows if all of the bugs are fixed with that. Otherwise 07, 08 and 09's will be the same. I believe the coupes got a facelift in 2009. The lines on the hood and side are a bit more pronounced. They also recieved new tail lights.

08's and 09's will likely still have warranty.

also on a side note, if you plan on commuting in traffic this is not the car for you. The turbos do not like to sit at idle for very long.

Otherwise good luck with the search. Hope you find what you are looking for.
