Buying used 2007 335i

Hi,
Is it okay to buy BMW 335i without a warranty, the car has around 70K miles.

What is the difference between extended warranty and CPO warranty?

I heard it had issues with fuel pump and turbo lags, How much would it cost if it needs repair for turbo and fuel pump if I had no warranty on it?

Thanks and appreciate all your inputs...

Personally, I'd be careful. Turbo engines are easy to abuse.

I doubt any of that if it's really CPO, but turbos are a little more sensitive to abuse like hard driving without being warmed up and being shut down without a cooling period.

So what is the correct procedure to warm it up and cool it down?

Thanks for the information.

IMO, full engine performance is available only after some minutes of full coolant temp. I like to give at least 8 or ten minutes myself. After hard driving, the turbo should be allowed to cool at idle for at least 3 minutes, 4 or a bit more may well be better. If you're talking about a track run, several full circuits of the track or greater than 10 minutes or more under light throttle. These are just my thoughts from friends that run at tracks now and then.

Warranty Warranty Warranty

Hi, I just traded in my 2006 330i for a new 2009 335i last fall. My 335i now has 1475 miles on her and I believe has had 3 hpfp replaced. With the car you want to purchase already at 70000 miles you almost won't have any warranty left. I think the best bet is to buy a newer model with less mileage and more warranty left on her.

My 2006 had only 13000 miles on her and I never used the full maintenance service work to its full potential but it was nice knowing it was there. As for my 09, it has been flat bedded to a dealership 500 miles away on two occassions due to this hpfp problem. I've just taken her out of winter storage so I hope I will be problem free but I know that a phone call will get a loaner sent to me and my car transported to the dealer to fix. (Of course this is still a pain in the butt) Does this leave me with confidence in the car?

The hpfp warranty is extended beyond the 4 year 80000 mile period. I believe it is extended to 10 years and I'm unsure of the mileage ceiling. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

With the two small turbos I do not notice any turbo lag at all. This is what hooked me into trading in my 2006. There really wasn't too many warranty approved upgrades that provided the power I wanted for the 2006. Although the cars look similar, the extra performance was the hook for me. Further to that, I added the Dinan upgrade for more hp and torque. Ask any forum member how painful my decision was to get rid of my 2006.

I love the look, handling, performance of my car. I loved the quality and craftsmanship of the 2006. So far my 2009 has been a headache but I still do enjoy driving the car and was dying for the snow to be gone to be able to take her out for the summer.

I don't see too many more forum complaints about hpfp problems so hopefully BMW has rectified this but I don't believe they've done anything different? BMW's are great cars perhaps I have a lemon but it is very early still for me. After seeing what I've gone through with my 09 you should be wary but buy one with as much history and warranty as possible.

Take care
Walter
