2008 335i question

sorry if this has been discussed to death. I tried to search for 335i info but didn't get any results.
I'm in the market for a 335i (I think). I've read about the HPFP problem and it seems it's still unresolved. Correct? I've also read about injector issues, turbo issues and transmission issues.
Are these over hyped or should I stay away from a 335i?

I'm looking at a 2008 335i with 62000 miles. It has the remainder of the CPO 100K warranty but don't know the exp date. Would the mileage scare the BMW experts away?

oh, the car is an auto, are the manuals more reliable?

Thanks, Don
Looking for a 993
1987 911 - Sold
2013 991 - Sold
2015 Audi Q5, 2015 Golf TDI

I looked at the 335i... if it wasnt for the engine problems, I may have bought one. The HPFP issue, from what I have read...was never resolved and there are owners out there that have had 3 or even 4 HPFP in one car under 100k miles. BMW supposedly are warranting this issue up to 100K on all 335is. That issue alone would frustrate me so I decided against the 335. Also the new 335s are single turbo in order to get away from some of those issues that the earlier twin turbos had. Lots of good info on the web and BMW forums on this. Too bad cause its a great car otherwise.
