I have had two rattles that are still not fixed. Enhanced Bluetooth works like crap and has been fixed 3-4 times and still not working. Comfort access is flakey.

Passenger restraint malfunction intermittently. Otherwise nothing. Flawless. Best BMW I've ever had out of 5 3 series models.

My car must've had the Monday morning blues this week... when I got in Monday morning, all memory settings were forgotten: seats, pre-set buttons, unlocking of all passenger doors when the car switches off, etc. It was like the car had reset itself to its default.

Was in a rush to get to work so I just adjusted my seat and drove to the office, meaning to get in touch with BMW later. When I started it up in the evening, everything was back to normal - both memory seats, pre-set buttons, etc were as they ordinarily are. Problem hasn't recurred & hopefully it'll stay that way.

It was like the car lost its mind cos of Monday blues...makes it seem a little human.

I live in California and it is pretty bright in the morning, but I still have the night time running light in the morning... Do you think we should take it to the dealership or Are we being a little sensitive? I my old Honda and Acura's were fine with those... And the CD player can drive me crazy too. It doesn't read some of the mp3 files!

It's annoying, but a minor inconvenience. It's funny as I see all the other car on the road with their DRL's on, but all the other BMW's with their low beams on during a bright sunny morning/evening.

Interestingly enough, it was a little overcast this morning and the low beams stayed off

The auto lights come on in very bright light to make the car more visible. My 2006 E90 did it and my 2012 E91 does it. It's a safety feature.

Also, after buying a used first model year BMW and reading the E90 issues in the first year, I would run away from a first year model. Same goes for mini and really anyone. Especially with the complicated tech.

Also, it should give them time to correct the overboosted steering. And hitting sport every time one gets in isn't okay.

No biggie here.
The stall problem has not been fixed. All the software update did was to help avoid having the ASS turn on automatically. But since the system can be turned off by merely pushing a button, that update is not an absolute necessity for me. I'll delay having it done until I take my car in for its yearly servicing.

The REAL fix would be having an automatic stop/start system that works smoothly without having any fear of the engine stalling. That's one update I'll be looking forward to. Whether it ever will happen is another matter.

I've already discussed with my CA and we've set up an appt.

\"So Afraid\"...?

That's what warranties are for. Just let go.

Ditto

My dealer (UK) advised me there is no fix yet. Apparently BMW aware & there will be a software update soon. Apart from that. This car (335i) is a joy to drive.


UPDATE - software fix now available I,m informed.

IMO I don't think a lot of cars would be affected and as new buyers we only focus on the problems we read...

This poll should help new buyers see what % of forum members really did have problems with their F30..

GUYS DO SHARE WHAT ISSUES YOU'VE HAD IF YOU'RE VOTING THAT WAY
Read any forum about any car and you will see they all have problems. Best of luck in finding the right car for you though!! So far besides the fact that the tech package voice control and POI database are horrible Im liking my car quite a bit.

Wiper relay fauly.

My 2 months F30 has experienced faulty wiper relay. This cause my wiper to wipe non stop. So i have took out the wiper. BMW said they need 2 weeks to ship over the relay from German as it is coded with chassis no. Is that true? Why does it takes that long since its an emergency? Dont they stock here in Malaysia and allow it to be coded here? This has cause inconvenience to me. BMW Munich, please look into this as i have emailed to you, BMW Malaysia and the dealer Quill Automobile.

I was at the dealer looking at the M Sport just the other day and pointed that same issue out to the salesman. It was very obviously loose but I am sure it's an easy fix.

Gearlever rattles - stops when you lightly press the top of the lever. Should be easy enough to sort.

Boot tends to bounce open if you don't shut it with a smooth motion. Probably just an adjustment of the stopper things.

Pretty minor really, and I'll take it in to get them sorted soon, together with any other snagst that come up.
