The proper question is, PREMIUM OR REGULAR FOR AN '04 330?

The answer is, use the gas specified by the sticker on the gas cap, or fuel filler door. The caveat is, a lesser grade is fine, the car will adjust the engine timing as needed to support what you put in. There is no point in using a higher grade, the car will not run better with better gas, but it will tune itself to the lesser gas if you put it in.
Nice try. . .I answered this like 4 pages back with pictures of the gas filler and manual! not falling for it this time.

"Stupid people" was a good try though. . .good try indeed. . . really tried to throw some tinder into the fire (or you could say "pour gas onto the fire" - ha).

My shortest post ever?

stupid people
