Question No Power. REALLY Slow.

So, my '97 528i has about 191,000 miles on it. I know the thing was never designed to be a jack-rabbit to begin with and age isn't helping. But I don't think I should have to floor the pedal to get...

I'm sorry to tell you a 528i doesn't have a snowball's chance in Hell against even a V6 Mustang, let alone a GT. It wouldn't even be close.

I'd find a way to get out of it and not lose face.

Could be a bad or disconnected ground - particularly after coming out of a body shop.

Where was the damage on the car?

I drove mine with a leak like that for 4 years. Just kept topping off. I think you'll be okay for just a few days. :)

Good luck on the DIY rack replacement.

Hello. :-)

So, I've been on several NASCAR boards and one writers board, but this is my first vehicle-owner's/enthusiast's board. I suspect this will be both interesting and fun. :)
