F30 335i breaks down while testing on Nürburgring

Yesterday we brought you the latest pictures of the a F30 test mule running the Green Hell AKA the Nürburgring. It seems shortly after our spies snapped their spy shots and ran off to upload them the test mule they spied suffered some sort of mechanical failure and had to be towed back to BMW's test facility by an X5.

Any one have a guess what broke? Sub-frame? HPFP?

Wonder if this car has an oil cooler? My Gawd, let's hope so. If BMW allows one turbo (of any kind) out the door without one, they are crazy.

I think the F30 is going to be a major disappointment considering it no longer has a N/A engine, they're probably going to stick that POS electric steering in it. As far as I'm concerned, the E90 is the last true BMW 3 series that has all the characteristics that the model has been known for. This one broke down! Is this some kind of forebearer to the kind of reliability we can expect? Who knows, it was probably just a fluke.

That's funny you say this, b/c all the forum members said the same thing about the e90 when it was coming out, same about the e46 when it was coming out. Enthusiasts don't like change I guess.
