1. No, you are supposed to add 1 litre at a time. It is even written on the display.

2. I don't think that you'll have any problem, but LL-01 oil is expected.

I don't want a D-segment sedan. Small is beautiful and I am used to frugality. :)




Yet it has still a better power-to-weight ratio than the 320i, the 320i being only "worse".

RWD F30 are better cars than AWD F30. Stand lower, 200lbs lighter, slightly better steering / predictability and 1mpg. Traction control / ESP do a great job. Zero need for it unless you have...

They don't drop clutch for the 5-60mph neither brake torque; it is from idle or so. Otherwise it would kill the purpose of it.

TSX < > Accord.

The TSX had very low torque to start with, at 163lbs-ft and at 4500rpm.

The 2013+ Accord is a different story. It is quite torquey for its class and has more flexibility ...

My car has been taking 1 litre of oil every 2000 miles since new. I wouldn't be so concerned. Check for leaks anyway. Specially around valve cover and oil filter housing.

Can you extend your lease a few months?

Well... they don't!

Accord 5-60mph 6.9s
320i 5-60mph 7.7s

That's a significant difference in my book. According to most people's little torque theory, it should be the contrary.

I don't know what that means. But forced induction doesn't make a quicker 5-60mph than an Accord 2.4 when the little theory and mislead numbers off this chart suggest that it should have.

Well if you look at the 328i N20 chart with +33.3% power, they claim about the same level at 3000rpm.

So yes, something is wrong here.

Something is obviously wrong here. I doubt that the 320i N20 is simply a castrated of a 328i N20 over X rpm and the above chart doesn't say that. Anyway, if torque curve was everything, then the...

HP is a formula.
HP = Torque x RPM 5252

Assuming torque is similar within 15-20%, it can't be 120HP for the 320i and 75HP for the Accord. It just can't. Your 120HP must be at best for a...

That is certainly not the point. I bought 2 Accords new. I would definitely buy a 320i over them.
