As an owner of 2008 535i, I have had the misfortune of having the HPFP replaced twice, once at 14K miles, and then again at 30K miles yesterday. My SA tells me it is a new design. I am keeping my fingers crossed.

The car goes out of warranty next year. I understand that the HPFP is warrantied for 10 years.

Question: Has anyone had the HPFP replaced AFTER the basic 4 year/50K warranty ran out? Were there any out of pocket costs for you?

Please enlighten me. I need to decide if it is time to bail out on this once great brand.

Also, does anyone know if the new 550i engine (same as the one in 750i) has had similar issues with HPFP? My SA says no.

Cheers,

Figure on the pump being $500 plus labor.

It will be interesting to track HPFP performance in the new 6 and 8. They're both direct injection turbo engines like the M54 in the 535, so if their HPFPs are proven reliable, then BMW has likely solved the HPFP failure problem in the M54.

This should be sorted out one way or another by the time I'm ready for another 535 ED. The current one has about 55k mi...and is on its third HPFP:rolleyes:

I think you answered your own question. The cost is $0.

Yes, but are there any OUT OF Pocket costs such as diagnostics etc. that the HPFP warranty does not cover?

No. BMW covers it all for 10 years, 120,000 miles.

... or 120,000 miles whichever comes first. What I have not seen is any statements regarding the replacement pumps. My letter from BMW does not indicate if this warranty applies to just the original pump or any replacement as well. And if it applies to the replacement, does it just xtend based on original vehicle in-service date, or does the clock start ticking again all over with each replacement?

My interpretation FWIW is that its covered for 10 years / 120K miles from initial in-service date no matter how many times it fails and needs replacement.

Exactly! MY 2008 ~ 2010. :thumbup:

Did they extend the warranty to cover 2010 models? I thought is was only extended for 07-09.

As I just bought a 2010, I'd be happy to see it covered.

Yes, you should be happy. See the NEW Warranty Information on the attached SIB.

I'm officially happy :D (at least until the HPFP actually goes out on me)...

Thanks.

Are repairs documented in an SIB always done at BMW expense or just under warranty?

No. All SIBs have specific warranty coverage information.
