Are you in luton too? But I wasn't annoyed enough to avoid going back. I had it in the shop several times, then found this in the manual, and took it in again last week; the service manager at the dealer says he has seen reports of this, but there is not solution that he knows of. I sit inside, forlornly looking out of the window at the overcast grey skies that typify the British summer. No more Beemer's for me. If you find my first few posts here at the 'fest, it's linked. There are no overheating problems for street driving, even in very hot climates.
Someone conducted a great survey over at e90 post. It's got some nice top end and the turbo's are good enough to give you a little feeling of boost. I guarantee you the issue is not resolved. I have 3 grandchildren in Florida and they love riding badman's car because I have a hard top! Overall, if you want driving reward, close your eyes and buy one. The turbos have been updated? Connecting with a pothole at 50mph sends a shudder through the cabin — only to be expected. That thought process became a myth when at only 28,000 miles, and having had all the recommended service on time, my car began to stutter and would shake terribly on acceleration. The big mistake I made was buying it new instead of used.
Each bank of three cylinders is blown on by a small turbocharger, which spool up more quickly than one big turbo serving all six. Upgrading to the 19inch double spoke 255 alloys cost £465, and black leather another £1065. I have had my 2008 335i for 3 years and only 27K mikes and have had nothing but problems. The switch is usually the cause, but the relay could also cause this. See our short film in the player below and make your own mind up.
The heavier 335xi and convertible 335i are a tad slower. I still have it with 200k miles. The optional leather upholstery is now an even cooler option, withheat-reflecting technology that can lower its surface temperature by as much as 36 degrees. I couldn't find an actual write up for the resolution on how to do here so here we go: Convertible car not being very convertible. The top getting stuck can blow the electric windows fuse, damage the motor and create additional problems on thhe electric windows system, that is probably the reason why your windows now get stuck as well.
I am very curious to know that actual failure percentage. So yes, I would say that the 2009 335 looks like a very reliable car. Pricing has come down for the 2009s in Canada though. That kind of repair failure rate hasn't been happening in my neck of the woods. But with 250kg less the 1-series leaves the 335i standing. I am done and I am turning it in today for a 328i hard top convertible, my 335i was a hardtop convertible too.
There are no overheating problems for street driving, even in very hot climates. No one had to get 'new' oil coolers; some models were not equipped with them, and some of those owners felt that they needed them, even though they had not experienced any overheating problems. The convertible top is usually the relay in the trunk. Had a bunch of other little things done as well. Coupe and convertible versions of the 328 come with slightly more equipment.
But the heightened sensations and sense of freedom totally compensate. The front seats have enough firm support to ward off fatigue during a day's worth of driving, while the rear seats are adequately roomy for adults on shorter trips and plenty accommodating for children. As always, it provides a tremendous mix of handling, ride quality, performance, luxury and styling. Extremely enjoyable because of how well it settles on the road, mind you, it is a stiff ride and is not comfortable in the city. It takes a second longer to reverse the process, which is about seven seconds quicker than its closest competitor, the Volvo C70. Can't say I would buy it again.
Not that I do not like it but in the big picture it might not be the right car for me. It is kind of hard to drive a car if it won't go. I will probably replace the coolant pump since it is also known to fail early. Looks-wise, you probably won't spot the new convertible by its 3-series-coupe-like front-end, but rather from the rear, where the coupe's flowing roofline is replaced by a distinct line where the convertible's roof meets the trunk. It's extremely stylish and easy to drive. I also found the gearchange too notchy, and despite having a twin-turbo 3.
To be honest ive never experienced the servicing department, I had it booked in with them but I managed to solve it before the car actually went in! You can also replace the standard walnut interior accents with either light poplar or aluminum trim at no additional cost. Just squeeze the throttle and the engine does the rest. The quirky rear brake sensor issue has faded. I took the car for an oil change and the car was in excellant condition for a car with 120k on it. Changes from convertible to coupe in 23 seconds Hardtop convertibles offer numerous advantages over their soft-top competitors, including coupe-like quietness and excellent visibility when the top is up.
