OK, 218HP, anyone can tell if what normal gas mileage for this type of engine would be.
Any known problems with this 3.0 V8 engine?
Also, took it out for a test drive yesterday and heard a strange noise:
turned on the defroster while driving to check if it was in working condition, when I shut it off, about a minute later I heard a loud whrrrrrrring noise what seemed to be coming from the top center of the dashboard. Noise would last for about 1 second, stop for approx 3-4 seconds and then come back on again. I pulled the car off to the side to listen more carefully and the noise stopped. Continued driving with no other problems.
The noise sounded like a small motor recycling, can anyone shed some light on this???
Salesman was no help, had no idea. Car manual is missing so I will be stuck learning the car functions on my own. Also 1995 BMW key has basically 2 buttons, can anyone tell me functions of these 2 buttons. I downloaded the PDF file for 1997 & series, however, some features are different on the 1995 7 series model. (ie. button towards front is for unlocking/locking door locks); can front button do any other function, what is back button for, I pressed but nothing happens.
