    hi folks. I have just completed a 2400 mi trip and have noted wildly varying mileage on my 2003 325i stick shift . I have historically achieved 35 mpg (US gal) on the freeway, but this trip it went from that to 27 or so in a somewhat random manner (according to the average on the digital...
  10. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    Hey! I have a 1984 BMW 318i. Usually while driving at freeway speeds, it starts to jerk a little bit, but not enough to cause alarm. Randomly, I was driving down the free way and I lost all power and the car started surging. I could drive the car at about 5 mph, but the vehicle violently jerked...

    My 530i with 65k mi has been lurching / lunging under normal and light acceleration. It seems to occur between 15 and 40 mph in the higher gear ranges. It does not lurch under heavy acceleration or when driving at any constant speed. Same result in sport mode and when shifting gears manually...

    Hello Forum members, I have a 2001 325i that I purchased one year ago, it is almost 100K miles. It has developed some problems and the mechanic wants to "experiment" to find the solution, of course on my dime. No way. So, before I take it to the dealer where they will take me to the cleaners...
