It has 2 cams. M44 In-line DOHC 2.0L 4 pot. Decent engine, but the fuel economy is the same as on my 2.5L M52TU25 323i. My old 318Ci got 9.8L/100km on the OBC display. My 323 does 10.6L/100km. I have...

SAVA Eskimo+ Mud&Snow off-road tires 225/55/16"....

SAVA Eskimo+ Mud&Snow off-road tires 225/55/16". Butt ugly, but the only thing that will get you trough Eastern European winter. A far cry from my 225/40 and 255/35/18" summer Michelins.

I found BEHR and BERU Tstats for 200 LEI (62$). Both come with a plastic housing.



I'm letting the engine warm up because when running cold it gets TERRIBLE mileage. Pulls a lot better tough.
