Finally made up my mind about getting 335...i think

So im selling my Ducati in order to have a good car with some balls. One of the things i've been hearing is that the fuel pump, and how people have prolem with that. Im ok with that as long as the dealer replaces it with the new one. But i want to hear from everyone who has a 335, what kind of problems you guys usually see and the what nots. Please help me out, because I'm still wondering if i should get the 335 or get a 545i.

my 335 has been perfection for it's 30k lifetime. Including fuel pump.

In the 14 months I've had my car, the only problems I've had were the driver's side lumbar support stopped working, and the driver's side b-pillar trim came loose and rattled a little at speed. Both fixed under warranty. Other than that, the car has been a dream to drive

What Ducati do you have?

29,000 mile 335i, no problems to report, get what you like.

Nice, my last Duc was a 2000 996, gone but not forgotten

I like the E92 from almost every angle, get the coupe!

edit: I just read my own post, 2000 was 10 F*CKING YEARS AGO....now I feel old and hopeless

Currently own a 2010 e92 335i coupe with 5.2k miles (built in Nov. 2009)

no HPFP failures. had rough cold starts earlier in the year, when the weather was cold. i'm beginning to think HPFP failures are a combination of cold weather, and quality of fuel used.

no real issues, other than the fact i want to mod the fug out of the car but cannot due to warranty concerns.

oh and i love this car.

Yeah i had a ninja 636 before i got my Duc. And what a freaking difference. I love the trq! But sad to let her go, but only to get something amazing in return. Yeah i love the way coupe looks especialy the headlights. I cant wait to get my and make it look like a M3. Here's couple pics of my baby that might be gone tomorrow!

After the Ducati any car's going to feel slow.

Keep the Duc and buy a 328i !

my fuel pump just went at 44k miles. The excitement the car give you is worth it. but sometimes it can be very dangerous.

I bought my 335 in April with 36k on it, was still on its original HPFP. I've got 41k on it now, have no long cranks but have gotten a half engine light (which resets when you turn the car off), but I'm realistic and know my pump won't last forever. Once I start getting long cranks, or get another 1/2 engine light, I'll take it in. Other than that it's only been a few electrical niggles which (IMO) don't warrant their own visit - my doors no longer automatically look after driving a little and my passenger side mirror no longer automatically points down when I put it in reverse. Oh and I love the shit out of it
