I get around 24 mpg, city and highway combined. I can get up to 30 mpg on the freeway if I'm willing to frustrate myself by driving conservatively.

My girlfriend's 2002 325xi has just over 267,000 miles. The engine is in great shape, so I'm now spending to get some bodywork done and the interior spruced up so the car will look more or less new...

You might consider a 6-series convertible. Frankly, I think my 330 is more fun to drive, but the 650 is perfect for cruising down a scenic highway on a sunny day with the top down, and it's...

I recommend reposting your question in the forum for the E46, and ask them about reliability, cost, etc. There are a -few- E46s around with low mileage, but it's not too hard to find an E46 in good...

They were supposed to do a coolant flush, but I later noticed that they didn't use BMW coolant--it's green. I do need to get a proper flush done. I use a different shop now.

Yes, and I suspect they also think that, since a bimmer gets cheaper to buy as it ages, it must get cheaper to maintain too!

A K&N intake (the usual CAI people have in mind) won't do much for the sound; it will be a tad louder and a tad higher-pitched. Frankly, I prefer the sound of a stock engine over that.
