2007 BMW 335i Problems
A droning type noise may be noted when the air conditioning system is operating. Additionally, a vibration may be felt in the steering wheel. If these issues are no longer present when the AC system is turned off, the problem may be low refrigerant charge in the system. Our technicians remind us that if the refrigerant charge is found to be low, proper leak diagnoses should be performed in addition to recharging the AC system.
The Check Engine Light may illuminate and/or a lack of power may be noted due to a failed high pressure fuel pump. BMW has released a service bulletin regarding this matter, the suggested repair is to replace the failed high pressure pump.
The Check Engine Light may illuminate associated with misfire codes stored in the DME (Powertrain control module). Most often no driveability symptoms are noted. Upgraded software for the DME is available which should correct this concern.

2007 BMW 335i Recalls
The front passenger seat contains a mat that determines the presence and size of a seat occupant. This input to the airbag controller helps to determine if and how forcefully the passenger airbag should deploy in the event of a crash. The detection mat can develop cracks and fail. If this were to occur, the airbag would not deploy as expected, increasing the risk of personal injury. Dealers will repair the occupant detection mat to eliminate the possibility it may crack. Additionally certain vehicles will receive and extended warranty on the front passenger seat occupant detection mat.
The vehicle battery is connected to the fuse box via a heavy duty cable. It has been determined that the cable connection at the fuse box can degrade over time, resulting in increased electrical resistance. This increased resistance can cause the connection point to overheat and break, resulting in a loss of electrical power and causing the engine to stall, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the positive battery cable connector and secure it with an improved method to correct this concern.
2007 BMW 335i Reviews
Why does everyone whine when talking about their "ultimate driving machine"? Quit crying. You knew they rode stiff when you test drove them. Electricals are fine. I've had 5 fuel pumps replaced, under warranty. I have 77000 on the odometer, and the car just keeps getting better and better. If you want a softer riding car, get a Camry! Grow up and enjoy the ride.
I am also disappointed with the ride experience of the 335i. Beautiful car - fast, sleek, but drive on your standard highway or local road and be prepared for the unpleasant ride. Every small bump in the road feels like large pot hole - boom! I even had to replace the front rim $335 USD...it had a crack in it at 38K miles. The tire place said "this is common with these rims" I am now jealo...
I bought this car with very low miles, back in Sept. 2008. This car is a blast to drive! It handles amazing, aside for around sharp turns. I gave the "body, interior & Misc." category only 4 stars, purely because I've had an issue with the high pressure fuel pump, which apparently has been changed 3 times due to some flaws. At this point, the car drives great with no problems.
