Is it just me?

Is it just me or are there more 328i issues popping up around here than 335i issues lately? Seems every thread I read is a 328i, 328xi, or non 335i problem...

There are three times as many 328i sold than 335i, so it's entirely normal.

People forget that the N52 has more parts than an N54, and that most of the problems are common things like cooling system, suspension, and electronics.

Looking on the streets I see at least 10-20 328's for every 335i - maybe because 335's have more issues ? LOL

You should read some threads from 2008-10...it demonstrates why the N54 was replaced by the N55 in the 335

Yeah, I'm with the others on this... there's just a lot more 328i on the road than 335i.

My guess is the sticker difference had a lot more to do with why that is over any sort of reliability issues.

All good points. I just remember more n54 issues in the past on here but seem to be rare these days. And yes, every other car is a 328i out here as well. I didn't realize it took more to get that car moving around town under the hood.
