Default BMW 335i Coupe - problems

My name is Dan and I live in Phoenix, AZ. I did buy a BMW 335i coupe at the beginning of September. When the car had 105 miles on it the Check Engine Light came on. I took it back to the dealer to have it checked and all they did is clear the error codes, which indicated that there was a fuel problem. They thought that the car ran out of the gas somewhere between Germany and the US. A week later the light turned on again, and I took the car back to the dealer, and they kept it there for a week. The first problem is that the dealer did not have the required software to diagnose the car error codes. The factory engineers in Germany got on this and produced a software upgrade which they overnighted to the dealer. When they were able to read the error codes, they were convinced it was the fuel pump and ordered one for me. In the mean time they released the car back to me, but not before stealing the nice red wood stick shift **** and replacing it with an old leather ****. Since i got the car back, the check engine light came on only once. As for the oil temperature, the car does run hot. Even in street driving the temp is around 240 degrees. I called the shop foreman at the dealer and he told me that if the temperature reaches 260, I should slow down and take it easy. Why a new car should overheat like that is the big question. How a company like BMW can put out a new product that does this is unbelievable. It shows that they have no clue about turbos, or about you and me, the customers who buy their products. The car heats up to 240 degress if i drive it on the freeway for 40 miles. What will it do if i drive it from Phoenix to LA, almost 400 miles? So, the car is fast, it looks good, the interior is impecable, but it overheats and has problems. Out of the 4 weeks i owned it, it was in the shop for a week already. Does anyone else want to buy this risky propositiion?
