I'm curious too. I test drove one when they first came out, and I thought the interior was quite nice (not too blingy, as Jaguar tends to do) but I found that brapping and popping exhaust to be...

It's been 5 days since you posted this - what happened?

I'm guessing that your prospective car is selling for around $50K, give or take? For that much money, spending $30 for an autocheck is...

By mobility kit, do you mean can of sealant and compressor? I got the "Slime" brand kit, around $30 at Autozone.

The quality of the gas at the end of the tank will only get worse, as water (which is heavier than gasoline) in the tank may start to affect drivability. The octane will surely will not get better...

I've had many 5s (E28 (3), E39 (4), and F10) and went from an F30 430i to the 640iGC. I'm lovin' it!

+1

Don't do the crime if you can't pay the fine.

I just got a ticket lwo months ago for 16 over. Why? Because I was speeding. That's not the cop's fault. He's just doing his job.

I'm going to suggest that since the 340 has a lot more torque than the 328, that makes the rapid "sport" shifts more abrupt in the 6 cylinder.

It should. Move on, find a 2013 or newer, or avoid the V8. These are extremely expensive cars to maintain, even without the known problems of this engine.

You can probably buy a set of tires for less than $1152, depending on what size wheels the car has (I'm guessing 16" on a 320i). Lease turn-in rules allow for a little bit of wear and tear. In...
