"Yes, fun cars to drive, but not Japanese levels of quality once they pass 60K miles."

You're right, perhaps you need a Civic, or a BMW with a manual tranny. Good luck.

Is your voltage low? I've seen low voltage cause very strange things to happen. Maybe a deep charge on a charger overnight (or 24 hrs if you can, unhooked) and then try again?

I think you've done well at 360k, but I don't think it's terribly high for one of these engines. A friend of mine has 600k on the original engine of an e36, original gearbox too, manual of course. ...
