I would not advise this, if you love her. High Pressure Fuel Pumps were a major issue with the 335, not the 328 if I remember correctly. I don't know for sure, but I think BMW issued a recall to fix the issue and/or extend the warranty, but make sure you/she do the research. You need to replace the entire fuel tank assembly to replace the fuel pump and if memory serves its upwards of $6,000.

Now, aside from the hpfp there aren't many more common issues that come to mind. I think a bunch suffered from faulty passenger air bag sensors.

Why not find her a good,low mileage, *well maintained* e46 and save some money (and get a better car, in my opinion)?
