I was 22. First car I bought myself (in IT). Sold at age 24 so I could tow my boat with a 4 Runner. Regret the sale every day.

No 1996 5? Was it e34 or e39?

Ok, I always thought that the 96 5 series was an E39. I have never seen an e34 with the 1996 model year. Nor have I seen and E39 with the 1996 model year. This begs the question- Was there a model...

Ok, to clear this up. First of all, all e46 engines, even the 323, have double vanos timing. They didn't want to call the 323 a 325 when it came out because they had "discontinued" the 325 in 1995...

M3 simulator

It is SO COLD here in Chicago, that my Z rated tires don't stick to the salty pavement at all (even on dry road- due to rubber hardness and residual salt). I guess this must be what it feels like to...

Ok, that is nothing for an oil service. Mine came to 293.50. They replaced the wipers without asking, which really pissed me off extensively. If you're wondering, that's 29.95 for one side and 19.99...

V1 fooled by the Envoy
