If it's at all like the N54, the system powers up and primes the fuel system when the car wakes up (i.e. door unlocks or opens).

IIRC, these systems are designed for very specific charge amounts, and the old "add a pound / look at pressure" technique doesn't work.

Ah, older turbos. Long warmup, long cooldown (slow driving and turbo timers), coked up bearings, the occasional swallowed vane. Good times.

Well, that's not quite accurate.

The N55 in the M235i is rated at 332HP vs. 330HP for the N54 in the 335is. "Normal" torque on both is 332 ft*lb. The 335is did have the 7 second 370 ft*lb...

Well, I didn't go looking for the sedan, so it may be there somewhere on realoem. Go to the home page, enter the last 7 of your VIN, and take a look. It may be there for yours as well.

It is not common. Sure, any car can have A/C issues, but I honestly can't recall the last time I saw someone with an A/C complaint on the E90 board.

I don't think $8k for a 10-year-old car with 160(k?) miles on it is too good to be true. Edmunds values it at around $5k-$6k for a private sale, maybe add $1k for a one owner car that's been cared...
