The cooling issue guaranteed comes out in BMW's testing, they just say it is ok and send it out as most buyers will not track their cars. That's why cars like the 335is have larger coolers than the regular 335i.
it's hard to tell if the F30 has vent issues. The front fascia appears to be pretty generous with air flow to the radiator. Is that a front mount intercooler on the F30?
