    Hello all,
    I'm sorry to write in English, but I don't speak German well enough to ask technical questions, or understand the answers.
    I'm also sorry to bother the 1 series forum with a 3 series question, but this one seems more active than other forums.

    I am planning to buy a secondhand 335i but I've heard terrible stories about the HPFP on it. Most problems seem to excist in the USA though. This could be because they have 10% ethanol in the fuel there but also because BMW had to 'cheapen' the car for the USA so it will sell.
    I found some hits in this forum considering the HPFP, but like I said, my German isn't good enough to figure out if you guys were discussing the situation in the USA or that European 35i's are also having problems.

    Is the problem with the fuel pump bad enough to stay away from a 35i ?
    The reason I want to buy a 335i instead of a 135i is that I need the extra room. So please don't feel offended. :)

    Regards,
    Martin
    The Netherlands.

    For some more info about that problem in English I'd recommend you to go to the E90post forum. It's a regular topic over there, and although they're mostly US dominated the fuel pump is the same for the cars in Europe.

    We have seen less problems over here due to the better fuel quality, but it is still a recurrent problem. Still, should it prevent you from getting the 335i? I wouldn't say so - the fuel pump is not that expensive to replace after all. And the car is so much fun and easy to modify - the best engine that BMW has made for a long time (I'm talking about the N54 here, obviously).

    Hi, there is a known issue at BMW to replace tbe HPFP & adjust software to avoid further problems. Go for the 335i & enjoy the ride on the torque plateau ;)

    Well, I want to figure out how bad the problem is before I make the decision to buy or not to buy the car.
    I used to have a Jeep Cherokee which had so much problems I became afraid to drive it.
    That also cost me a fortune in repairs, so that's another reason to know what I'm getting into.

    No fear necessary ... a switch to ne actual generation with software upgrade to reduce initial fuel pressure is mainly covered by BMW warranty and if not, its below 500EUR in total. The sympton is, that starting the car needs about 5x turnarounds on the engine or you get an error in display and power is limited to felt 150PS ... you can drive with the defect pump though, but exchange then would be highly needed. Mainly the fault is detected between 40-60tkm ...

    Thank you. So there is a fix to the problem. That is great news. :)
    I'll make sure I check if that's done before I buy the car.
