Says you, a person that bought an LCI E90.

I find the grafted on old school "nostrils" to be incongruous with the angular design of the E90 and that the LCI was a lame attempt to make the new...

Jeez, an indy repair place gives you a loaner and you complain? I have never heard of an independent garage giving loaner cars at all.

Agreed.

My dad gave me a fairly low mileage six cylinder, automatic '71 Maverick when I was 16. It was dependable and BORING!

I sold it and bought a '69 Mustang Mach I. My dad had a fit. "That...

Hmmm, KellyBlueBook.com says good condition private sale is $11,870 and dealer retail is $14,100 and those are just "good" condition not very good or excellent.

Sounds too good to be true and you...

You're still OK. The scale represents a single quart. It will tell you when you need to add a quart.

But if it makes you feel better add a few ounces then wait to check the level indicator again...

I have noticed that my wrist is a bit limp when I shift the Miata and I find myself looking for show tunes on the radio.

My 2006 325i has an even more useless "instantaneous mpg" gauge in that location that basically just tells you how hard you are pressing the accelerator pedal.

Yeah, heard that one. We Miata owners also hear that the Miata is a "gay" car. I find that one the most amusing.

I don't care what other people think of my cars. I drive them because of what they...

Venting the crankcase gases directly to the atmosphere would also solve the issue, and it is what was done before PCV valves were mandated in the 70's. I wonder how problematic the release of the...

They do look nice. I wonder if the off set is different for an E60 than for an E90? If it isn't too different it may still work.

306 rwhp is better than most of the "muscle cars" of the 60's and 70's. I'm sure it doesn't feel underpowered.
