This time I'm at 170 miles and only have 1/4 tank left.



I WISH it was an M42. I think I'm going to check the timing with a light and check/adjust the valves again. Only other things I would think that could be effecting it is maybe a bad AFM, TPS, or IAC. I swapped in another AFM tonight and I'll see if that does anything.


The thing runs perfect except for at idle it bounces and is high. Can't find vac leaks, and I don't feel like spending 200 bucks on an IAC when that may not be the issue.

The 1984 BMW 318i, manual, has the highest stated MPG of any 3 series, 27 city/ 38 highway.

Dunno if that's correct?

Lola did 37mpg on the cali trip ... that was with maths...

cruising on the highway that car was phenominal.

Go to your home stereo set up, turn the sub pre-out up, and put on Unison by Porter Robinson, and blast that sh*t.

Just came across my Pandora and damn.......nice.

Exactly, but gotta stop switching cars like I switch underwear....

Planning to save 15k next year and possibly using my parents to co sign for the house, if not approved I'll probably lease a townhouse in the Suburbs....

And use the extra cash for something with 5.0l V8 RWD BMW :shifty:

My advice on the house front, start now. Work with a loan officer and see what you need.
That way, you have a year to get there, fix credit, or save cash.

Wish I did the first time.

My credit is OK for a 23 year old, one car financed, current on payments and one credit card (Wells Fargo)...

And I'll take that advice, I just started dreaming of a house recently... so Idk if I'll start dreaming of a yacht next week and start working for that lol...

Chad I never in a million years would've pinned you for a dubstep/house/eletronic guy.

I found a good new song on Spotify this morning: "On the Rocks" by Grieves.

If only for the lowering of prices on the E92, I like it.

Wow, I'm thoroughly impressed. That's a drop dead gorgeous exterior. Interior is sharp. Not amazing like the exterior but sharp.

Don't think I could ever stand to buy one though..... 4
series just sounds absurd. Bye bye legacy.
