own a 335i, have had 7 BMWs since the 80s, and 9 in my immediate family.
I dont want to make excuses for BMW or the HPFP. It is terrible, potentially unfixable, and i would never let my wife or children drive the car. We have had failures, and undoubtedly BMW has said it would be fixed, but keeps happening.
This will affect resale value, and i am glad it will. My hope is that BMW will learn from this and put out a better product. I dont want to defend this, if this happened to MB or audi, you guys would be all over them maybe...
This is a very dark part of BMWs reliability history. I hope the new turbo engines can turn that around. It is a shame.
