Oil filter housing

With each oil change, make sure you do not have any leaks where the oil filter housing is attached to the block. If you detect a leak, there are DIY's for gasket replacement.

F30 Corolla?

A few times this year I drove a new three series loaner while my '08 E93 was being serviced. My seat-of-the-pants gauge told me I was driving a Corolla. Am I alone in this assessment?

Hey G9 in Russia!

In U.S. dollars per gallon, what do you pay for premium gas?

What do you pay for an oil and filter change?

What do you pay for brake pad/rotor replacement?

Peace.
