Mein Auto: F30 335i (regretfully)
A sad end to my E90

Took my beloved 2011 Le-Mans blue 335i in for service two months ago for a regular service.
Dealer performed a regular service along with an update of the DME.

Had to return the car to the dealer a week later for complete lack of throttle response and unusual engine noises. Little did I know that would be our last drive together. After two months the dealer and BMW NA have given up on her, unable to find a fix. Both the dealer and BMW have been wonderful about the whole situation and have made amends.

2 months with a loaner X5 have convinced me that I surely don't want one. Sadly with kid number 2 now here, I'm headed begrudgingly into an F10 instead of an F30.

Sorry to hear they couldn't sort it out. It's rare but happens...I'm glad to hear they gave you a decent payout for it.

About the F10: Great car but...have you test-driven (test-fitted ) an F30 yet? They are surprisingly roomy compared to the E90, especially in the back. Tons of legroom. With your kids still at the car-seat stage (or so I infer) legroom is hardly an issue--you might find the F30 has plenty of space.

Sad to hear although the F10 isn't chicken liver.
