The service manual and sale person told me that I should run the high octane gas in my new 05 325i. Does any one have any recommendations? Service center mentioned that low octane gas will cause the nock sensor to go on.

I've only run premium unleaded. I'm sure it would run on regular unleaded, just not as well. You spent good $ on a new BMW, treat her right with the correct grade of gasoline

My 02 has 73500 miles on it. It went 385 miles on regular gas ONCE by mistake. Never do this. The car will not want to get out of its own way.
