The vehicle has a short block issue.
The car run good at high speed, but
performs badly at stand still. Idle is
low due to a leak down engine problem.
The problem was well noted by BMW and
180,000 units were affected. The
Engine is this car does not do well
with American gas due to a Nakusil
material that the short block is made
of. There's material on the web that
supports this claim. The car is no
good for that year. I wonder if the
BMW engineer was terminated. The
dealer sold me the car knowing that it
had a problem that they could not fix.
As a consumer it only to me one day to
late to figure that out.
The radio does not support CD changers
although the car is wired for it. What
was BMW thinking!
