actually, the guy that had it before me must have been pretty spirited too, since I only had it since 10,400. lol. I know one thing, those rears were expensive, and the fronts won't be much better. Great car though (my 5th BMW).

With gas 2.99 a gallon, would be nice to get 25-27 average milage, but I guess 22.6 mpg average is not tooo bad.

actually, 2.99 is reg unlead. I usually burn premium or plus, but I've never known for sure what to run in it. I guess I should look in the manual for recommended octane.
