FYI...it's not a "vacuum guage".

The E46 ZHP has it also just like my 1985 535i did. I view it as worthless. At the same location in my M5 there is an oil temperature gauge.

Hi again,

When I wrote the opinion that the E90 3 feels limp and flaccid in tight, urban situations, I meant around car parks and tight traffic spots. The added girth and somehow, the design and location of the pillars on the E90 all conspire to make the car feel fat and less manoeuvrable than its forebear in such situations.

As for the vacuum gauge, I use the term loosely as it gets the point across much faster.

As one party on this forum has noted, no matter which generation of 3 you choose, at least it's not a Mercedes.....
