Mein Auto: 2011 328i M-Package
2011 335i HPFP extended warranty

Hi everyone, first post.

I am looking into getting a 2010/2011 335i, and I have noticed the issues with the HPFP. I know that the 2010 n54 engine was extended to 10yrs/120k miles but could not find out if the 2011 model has its HPFP warranty extended.

Also as well with the 8yr/82k miles for the wasetgate. Does the 2011 fall under this since it was produced after the settlement.

You won't need it. The 2011 has the N55. Totally different engine.

I read that the N55 engines have experienced HPFP failures.

I know BMW doesn't have the 8 or 10 (can't remember which it is now) year warranty on the N55. If your out of warranty N55 HPFP goes, it's on you

^^^ Yup. N54 gets the coverage, not the N55.

By the time N55 shipped to the USA, the HPFP issue, which actually was not the pump, was resolved.

A software change assured sufficient suction side pressure to prevent cavitation - it was programming all along, a first year engineering problem probably spotted within weeks of the initial complaints.

But in the US o'A, the wheels of government grind slowly, and the wheels of EPA approval are among the finest grinds. Years passed....a recall was required covering all N54 units....fiasco!
