NO PROBLEMS:thumbup: We just love the car and its such a pleasure to drive. I am very glad we choose this car. No signs of the fuel pump or overheating problems, and the dealer we got is excellent, Sterling BMW, Ashburn, VA. I guess we are kind of boring, but thought everybody would like to hear about it. BTW I find myself commuting more and more with the 335i then the MINI COOPER, simply because of the comfort and ease of driving this car.

We took it on one long trip from DC to Erie, PA and averaged about 27 MPG...with no leadfooting it (not fun but it did save gas). Air Conditioning works great, and all is well with the world....:)

I'm with you, 4400 trouble free miles. I still find myself just going for a drive because I can't get enough. Great cars.

I long for the days of $.99/gallon gas (it was only like 6 yrs ago!!) since I'm driving the car so much... not cause I need to, but because I want to :thumbup:

That's excellent news. I know what you mean about always wanting to drive the car. I'm up to 2300 kms (~1400mi) and the car is perfect. :thumbup:

3,300 miles and no problems, just the iPod dropping to FM. I took it to have it fixed, they kept the car TWO nights and said they installed a software fix, it was not fixed. I will put up with if a couple more weeks, as I don't want to give them the car back, just yet, as I love driving it too much

Congrats! Glad you are enjoying the car.

I have to admit DC to Erie is a pretty long trip for you Yanks, but I always laugh when y'all talk about taking long trips. DC to Erie is just a smig longer than my trip home to see the folks from Fort Worth to Lubbock. We don't even start to think of a trip as long until it's at least over 500 miles. Having a Texas distance mindset makes driving around the Northeast seem like just a hop, skip and a jump. :bigpimp: I gassed up Monday at noon and when I got home tonight (Tuesday) I'd already driven 250 miles with just my average tooling around the DFW metroplex.

Good to hear! Just passed 6,000 miles in my 335XI.... and love it as well. Interesting to hear you got yours in Sterling. I stopped in there.... tennis shoes, shorts, and tshirt.... walked around all the 335's... and got passed (ignored) by not one, not two, not three, but four salesmen. Two of them were just standing outside smoking and BS'ing. So, I walked around the 335's for literally 30 minutes... no one even said HI. So, I hopped in my car and drove over to Fairfax. Approached within a minute, and they sold me a car that day. Sorry Sterling.. you coulda made a sale... had you just said HI to me. Oh well.... doesn't matter where I got it in the end... it's a great car and I love it so far!

I'm at about 4500 miles and 0 defects so far. I'm very satisfied with the initial quality of my first BMW.

Does anyone find it odd that we celebrate making it 1-4k miles trouble free with our bmw's?

My last SAAB was a disaster start to finish - GM really screwed the pooch as my previous 2 SAABs were trouble free. I went into a BMW with trepidation due to slightly above average reliability and the fact that it was a much larger chunk of money to put into what is essentially a depreciating luxury asset (not that I don't need a car of some variety in Atlanta). I spent way too much time at the SAAB dealer and so far the only time my car has spent at the BMW dealer was to find out the tires were overinflated (65psi!!!!) off the boat and to get the iPod adapter installed. I've also read about the fuel pump failures since before I went to pick up the car in Munich so of course my attitude could change before it's over.

Living out west we drive long distances to get to the popular places on the map.

Drove from Salt lake City to Phoenix ~ 750 miles. Phoenix was 115 degrees the day we got there. The air conditioning worked great cruise control set around 100 mph in the desert outside of Las Vegas. Great trip.

Salt Lake to Las Vegas is ~ 500 miles, we make that trip several times a year. Salt Lake to LA ~ 750 miles.

These are the type of trips you make out west. The BMW makes the trips much more relaxed.

~4500 miles and no mechanical problems. I just have a rattly passenger sport seat when it's unoccupied and an intermittent noise in the right front wheel well when I make slow left turns (everything is stock ZSP and no signs of rubbing).
