I've used Wurth products for years and love them!

Can't seem to find this stuff on the Internet. I've contacted a buddy of mine that may be able to get it.

Thanks!

The high cost of dealer service at BMW may be reflected in the price. This is a calculation that BMW seems to have done and part of their image in the US as a rival to Mercedes. Of course BMW's...

I've found gasoline nozzles on only two pumps so far. Wonder how they will like a gasser to get diesel pumped in! The retailers don't seem to care.

I would consider this seriously if I was in the market, but if I could afford one, would probably get the Mercedes E250 Bluetec. About $5000 more with the options I like.

It is a well known saying that power is what you take for granted first, so "losing its luster" as far as hp/torque is concerned is entirely predictable of any car, I imagine even an M3/4.
