Yeah various forums mainly the HPFP problems along with quite a few having to replace the turbos due to them failing or having play in them and there was a few other concerns. Ill be honest I do enjoy driving my car pretty hard, no stupidly, just pushing it more then cruising along each day and if I can do that with out worrying due to having factory warranty it's a big plus for me.

Plus the one downfall is if I was to get a 135 it would be the 08-09 twin turbo not the 10+ single turbo because their not as much fun haha and all the factory warranties on those are long gone
