89 octane cuz thats what it said in the manual lol
would getting a newer better exhaust and intake require me to use a higher grade fuel? Or does it just depend on what level of preformance I want and what I can afford lol.

said 89 in the manual, but for the extra buck 91 makes the car drive better, and slightly more economical

89, 91 when i can afford it, and whoeer is using 87 should sell there bmw to someone that would treat it better, you are shaving years off her, not to mention the poor performance you must be feeling!
