If you boost power dramatically in a 335d the transmission is a weak link. My own advice would be to not go too crazy with power mods on an older car, as it may bring the transmission to an early death. But a delete and good tune would be a great idea, in my opinion.

I just picked up my 335d at my guru's after it received its 60K service. I had him do a transmission service and the car shifts noticeably better.

I'm only at 213k miles on my 2012 X5 35d and it's still too early to tell.
