+1. I've talked with other 335i, 135i, and 535i owners who are non-forum members. I know 4 people who are on their second pump. Neighbor is on their 3rd.

Going to miss the luxuries of the BMW for sure....

Very impractical. Lol. I can use my Mom's Venza when I need 4 doors though. So that's why I pulled the trigger. The spousal unit also has a 4 door.

Get a 328. You'll be glad you did. The HPFP issues are a major inconvenience and worry. I had an 07 328. It had plenty of power.
