Does anyone know if 91 is required octane? I am hoping that it is required cuz my dad's a cheap basterd and makes me use 87, even though i use my own money to get 89.

I have an M30, and my engine chokes up if I use less than 89 octane

If you show your BMW love, she will love you in return.

Thats actually not true!! Cars run so much better when it is in cold weather!! You get so many more ponies out of your engine in cold weather compared to warm weather!! Also Turbo's and SC's love cold weather!! And dont do too well in warm weather!! That is why there are strict regulations on after market Turbo's and SC'ers in California
