This is a surprise. I believe the limp mode problems on N54 equipped 335/535 cars were mostly caused by High Pressure Fuel Pump failures, often repeated failures. I haven't heard of these type of issues with 328 (N51/N52 engine), which don't share the same HPFP unit, AFAIK. Consumer Reports even rated E90/E92 328 as the most reliable of current BMWs, FWIW.

The leatherette is still standard on 528/535 in US and was standard on the outgoing -2010 5-series as well. If you don't want to pay extra for leather you have to spring for a 550i.
