Most of the early 335 HPFP problems were due to higher ethanol content in our fuel causing deterioration and a software problem where the low-pressure pump wasn't priming the high-pressure pump sufficiently, causing it to "run dry" and damage itself. The newest pumps for the turbo engines are a different design, and after the software update, whenever you unlock or open a door, you'll hear the LPFP running for several seconds.
