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.

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

Well, i never said i get more power when its warmer ;)

The car just feels better, and softer and well built.. in the cold i have bad rattles and a bumpy ride with a rough sounding engine. blah :(
