2008 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.

2008 BMW 335i Recalls
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.
An incorrect crimp connector may have been installed on the side air bag and belt tensioner wiring. There may be insufficient contact in the wiring, creating high resistance. This condition may cause the side air bag and/or safety belt tensioner not to deploy if needed in a crash, which increases the risk of injury. Dealers will repair the vehicles free of charge. The recall began September 16, 2009.

Very fun car to drive. However early on I had to replace 2 fuel pumps on BMW's dime(BMW has since taken care of this issue). Another issue I have is with the sport trim which is aluminum. It scratches and dings very easily. I have not had any other problems and the car still makes me smile every time I drive it after 4 years. As far as the drive goes I would say it is what you'd expect from a...
Purchased new with sport package and ride is too hard. It seemed fun at first but even small bumps feel and sound rough. Rear keeps wearing tires. Replaced rear tires at 13,000 and had alignment done. Next day a friend told me my wheels looked like they were leaning in at the top, I thought he was joking but I told him it's fine I just had it aligned for $180 and 2 new tires at $1,000! Guess wh...
Besides the airconditioning system being mediocre, My passenger seat goes off when empty. Since it is intermittant and not showing an error signal, dealer will not repair. Have to keep seatbelt locked at all times without a passenger. BUT additionally, I paid for a car with keyless entry which just recently is dying. Have to put key in to start, sometimes can't even get doors to open (or trunk...
