I understand that the Woodinville Costco has/is installing diesel pumps. Haven't seen it at Kirkland or Issaquah, haven't been down to Tukwila lately. Haven't been to 4th Ave Seattle for years. ...

Wherever you went that suggested all 6 plugs AND coils certainly did you a disservice. Horrible advice. Usually replace the plug (or all 6 plugs if they're getting close to replacement), and then...

The 2010 year seems to be a good year.
Be sure to get a car with the "professional" or "HK/Logic7" sound system - BMW tried to put a base 6-speaker system with no amp into that model year.

None of those. You're not going to solve a lean condition by changing ignition components.

You have 5 Dynamic Traction Control systems in your car? How cool. Are they in cascade - that will make it very slow, I believe.

Haven't really noticed any business when driving my wife's 328d, but we don't drive it hard.

The 8 speed is a better transmission, not only because of more gears. The shift program seems to be able to more effectively use the additional gears - smoother shifts due to closer rations, and a...

You say your car is a 2000 model. That's an E46 - you should repost in the correct forum.

The answer is: an intake will not gain you more than 5 hp, if that.

I believe that they should fit just fine, without spacers (both E9x and F3x have ~34mm offsets). Be sure to get the right size tires (do not go with F3x tire sizes) and get the correct TPMS sending...

I would rank them xIce3 1st (they're a non-speed-rated pure winter tire), then the PA2 and WS80, then the Goodyear and others.

The diagram for the fuse panel is on the back of the cover, in the back of the glove box.
