I didn't know dinan had a package yet for the diesel; it's pretty sad you'll have to pay for a software upgrade by dinan which is probably 2K. It's just a shame the vendor just doesn't fix the issue. Oh well, that's BMW for you.

I had a similar problem. The power loss is very common. I finally got tired of it all and hired a lemon law attorney. BMW bought back my vehicle. http://www.attorneyforcalifornialemonlaw.com

I thought I was the only one having problems with the 335I...I only had the car for 2 1/2 years and been to the shop at least four times for the same problem, engine malfunction. I am so disappointed in BWM right now because this is ridiculous. Right now the car is in the shop for the same thing and they havnt figured out whats the problem. BMW needs to recall these models and see what the issues are with these models. Im so p-ss off beacause BMW needs to step up and live up to there name.

I have a 335i coupe with the Dinan chip and the Dinan oil cooler installed. So far the car has 50,000 miles and runs and performs wonderfully. It does crank longer than ususal since the high pressure pump was installed. Not a real problem, just a little aggravating but I can live with it. This car with the Dinan chip outperforms my prior 2001 M3 by a mile. Love this car. Nicest best performing car I ever had.

I own from new a 335 I,coupe, 2008 model and I have had problems before with the twin turbos operation, forcing me once to bring the car to the dealership for repair and pay more than US $ 1,500 to fix its vaacum hoses. However, that is not all, the weirdest experience happened just yesterday in the highway when returning home from a trip made to a city located some 200 miles away and having drove back and forth at +/- an average of 100-110 miles p/h on a quite steady mode, when suddenly the I drive screen indicated me a sudden power loss that was quite noticeable and which from the previous experience I could read it as being produced by one or perhaps the two turbos sudden operational failure.
Well fortunately this happened near the end of the trip and I left the car to rest overnight and today I have driven it without any malfunctioning happening.
I want to know if the turbo (s) failure was due mainly to overheating and if so will this failure not repeat itself.?
Thanks for sharing with me some light related with this problem.
See your idea

Look...why doesn't BMW cure the sh!tty cooling issue. Does Dinan have to fix everything for them; Most people I know are not scared of a 335i, they know the car will lag or shutdown. Just get an old-ass dodge colt and whoop its ass

I just got a BMW 335i on July 08...I've been driving a lot..It's only been a month and I've already got 3,000 miles on it. Is it a bad thing? I'm not too good with cars. And I saw the same car on the street but it was a lot lower...is it a good idea to lower it? I also want to add the chip to my car to make it 400 horse power? Heard anything about that? I want to do a lot to it...please give me some sugesstions.
Lowering looks great if done to an certain amount... Mine is lowered one in with 19 X 9.5 and its tight...better to drive a lot that not at all....if you got money to push around then get a chip but unless your doing some racing not to much of a point... There's ridiculous amounts of things you could do...is explain but I want to keep it one of a kind

Here in Anchorage Alaska even the hottest summer day (75) I have to run it hard to hit 250 (then driving steady on the road it drops right back to 230-5 or so ) the few minutes I spend in the store it drops right down to 220 in just a few minutes , on the other extreme at 30 below zero it's struggling to hit 150 oil temps , gotta cover the radiator to get up to 200 , BMW run great in the cold , there cold weather cars .

I have a 2007 335i Iam second owner I also found out that my 335i does not have a oilcooler and it runs HOT almost everyday I called BMW of Las Vegas they said the VIN shows that car should have one on it I went back to dealer who sold it to me Xotic Motorsports of St. George Utah and I was told they would do nothing what a BIG RIP OFF then I called BMWNA they also told me they would do nothing about it. Once again another BIG RIP OFF!!! if I want a oilcooler it will cost me around $5,450.00 out of MY POCKET again RIP OFF!!!! I will run this piece of BMW crap till it goes then for sure not deal with Xotic Motorsports of St. George or BMW ever again. and they call it the ultimate driving machine the ultimate money pit is more like it.
