I drive a F30 320i and an E83 X3. The X3 is taller. The 320i definitely handles better as far as a quick turn, cloverleaf exit on a highway, and emergency lane change. True, it's lower but not like...

Thanks. I do have a torque wrench but I only use it to tighten bolts to the desired specification. I view it as a precision tool. A breaker bar is slightly longer than a torque wrench and has no...

In the early 1980's, cars like the BMW 3 series were a bit lighter but not that much. They had about 90-120 hp.

If I did get a 316i, I would make sure it has the best suspension and tires so that...

Wheel bolts are on too tight

Wheel bolts are in too tight. The offender is a shop 12 miles away. What should I do. I used a breaker bar with a 1/2" to 3/8" adaptor and a 17(?) mm socket. The adaptor just broke because it was too...

Oh, you are late. You should have gotten your BMW for them already and you should already be driving it.

007 should drive a F30?

He drives a concept car, an Aston Martin DB10, in the next film. Too flashy for a spy?

He should be driving a M3, made to look like a 320i, with some MI6 specific equipment and weapons.

Sorry there's no been much help. I have seen oil change instructions for a 320i, but I haven't looked out for a x drive. The oil drain plug is different. With my car, lots of oil drains.
