At about 1800-2200 rpms in 2, 3, 4th gear. Just a slight shudder - more noticeable when not accelerating hard.

There is zero reasons a 2003 would need a new engine except for abuse - and a lot of it either from you, the previous owner, or a combination. 2 alternators - not unheard of. I replaced an...

Depends on the topography - many places I can shift at 1500 rpm and be fine. Warmer weather I average 25-26 mpg (most of winter in other words) in my 330i. A lot of times I am in 5th at 35-40 mph.
