Purchasing a E90 335i concerns!!

I have been looking at the e60 535i but after looking at the e90 335i I realized that was an option aswell. I know all the concerns about the turbo charged m54 motor, and was wondering if the 335i came with the same concerns or different ones or more problems?? If 335i owners could help it would be appreciated.

N54/N55 are the inline 3 litre 6 cylinder turbocharged engines used in the 335/E90 series. Do some searching here and you'll be rewarded.

Plenty of issues, some of them fixable under manufacture warranty, others are not. If you are not mechanically inclined enough to do extensive or minor maintenance work or well to do financially, I would do more research before purchase. I would start with search "335i problems" in this forum or google search for more information.

The HPFP and the turbos that you will hear referenced a lot are under extended warranty by BMW so those aren't so much an issue

good luck
