    Two 335i Questions

    Hi All,

    I have a 2008 335i convertible with about 23k miles.

    Recently, I received an engine malfunction with long cranking, I brought it to the closest dealer at the time and they replaced the high pressure fuel pump. A few days after I got the car back from this dealer, the car began to start after long cranks but only when cold.
    I brought it back to my regular dealer, they had it for a few days and said they could not replicate the long cranking. I got the car back, and it is still doing it. This morning it took about 9 seconds for it to start. No other issues, it runs fine and no warning lights. What do I do? There is no way the dealer was not getting long cranks when they had it, I almost feel it is a cover-up!

    Second question - when I went to the dealer, he hit me up saying that BMW recommends that I have the fuel injection system cleaned out at 30k. He said that "since we do not sell you the gas you use, this is not under warranty". Has anybody else been hit up with this? It seems to be BS, the car is advertised as "no maintenance costs", and this certainly feels like maintenance. Thoughts?

    Thanks!

    Is the regular dealer further away and the one trying to sell the injector cleaner? Stay away from them...

    You're being taken for a ride by the city slickers

    Or so they wish!
    How come for many years on these 3 Series boards no other person has had to have their fuel injection cleaned as part of normal maintainance that isn't covered under the free program?
    You can't control the degree of acidity in the acid rain that eats away at your wiper blades, yet the free program replaces them whenever they wear out.
    Dealer can't control the intensity with which you brake, but if you wear out your pads at 15K miles, they put new ones on for free.
    Do you need more examples?
