89 octane gasoline

In my experience, it's ok if you blend it (1:1) with 93 octane. I notice a slight loss in mileage and performance with less than 91. Anyway, you did by a BMW. By the way, some Sunoco stations have...

My wife loves the sport seats in our e90. She doesn't like the seats in our Lexus RX350. The extra support allows her to take comfortable naps, on long trips. By the way, we're not young, or tiny.

I'm sure it's the best 4 cylinder BMW ever made.

By the way, with sufficient balance shafts and overweight flywheels we can look forward to the 3 cylinder model.

I too have a 2006 330i (manual), now with 70K miles. This past summer the radiator decided to fail on the interstate. Had to have it towed etc.

Goodbye Run Flats...

you were just ok.

Just got a set of Conti DWS tires for my '06 330 w/sport and 6-speed manual.

Why the switch? Noise, comfort, wanted all-season capability, cost.

YMMV

I do that mix when the price of 93 goes over $3. You can even mix 87 with 93 to get 90. It's only 1 point low and runs just fine.

I just completed a round trip to Dallas, from northeast Maryland. Tanks with the ethanol gas gave me about 2.5 mpg less.

YMMV.
