At this age, the market will be enthusiasts only. Average buyer looks for reliability first and foremost when it come to cheap daily driver. Reliability does not associate with 335i unfortunately....

If you can get it for $3000. How much can you spend to bring it up to spec? $1k? 2k?.... 5k? Can you DIY if not, the cost goes up very quickly. What's a 160k mile 335i running condition worth?

There are thousands of forum threads and dedicated N54 websites that disagree with the above statement. For $20k+ I rather buy an N55 135i or 335i.

You might be confused with the N52.

Brake fluid change is pretty easy but takes time because of having to remove each wheel. Unless you have access to a lift. It's also not an expensive service job interestingly. So is your time worth...

You better have some savings to fix the typical N54 issues. This engine does not have reliability as its calling card. So if the sale price is all you can afford, you need to work in some sort of...

As much as I like e9x, two of the similar vehicles? I guess you can swap parts.

Most E90 problem threads are the n54 cars. Avoid those and you should have a nice modern rwd sports sedan that looks good and drives extremely well.

Dark colored oil is fine as "butter and shoelaces". Just don't follow BMW's OCI if you want a good and healthy engine.

-1 on the Driveguards. Can't wait to run them down and replace them. Had good experience with the Conti DWS. May go that route again.

There's a thread over in the e84 forums about this very topic.
I think e90 and e8x seats will fit the X1 since it is based on these two models. That said there might be some ECU challenges.

TL;DR.
My X1's rear wears faster than the fronts.
When it comes to rotation.... It's hip to be square. :D

FYI, the well reviewed Golf R not just rides on a FWD platform like its forebears, its AWD is front axle biased until slippage occurs. This car is often reviewed closely to the M235i.

I'll call it a win if they fix the F-series EPS. With the manual going the do-do bird, 90% of driving tactility feedback is via the steering wheel.
