At this point, that's true. This is the first repair I've had done to the car since I bought it about a year and a half ago, so if I had passed I would have still saved money. However, the peace of...

Russ said he came over here from Southern California and he's seen more CV boots split in 3 years than in 10 in CA.

I hate the Z3. And I hate the Z4 more. I also hate the M version of the Z3 as well, partially because it looks like drunken clown-shoe designer stumbled into the BMW design room the night before...

On my 02 S, I get around 22-25mpg in town, and closer to 28-30mpg on the highway. WAY better than my 01 Prelude. Not steller, but more than reasonable for a sports car IMO.

Kumho Ecstas are good tires (have them on my 02 S), but they can be loud. Just stay away form Potenzas. They are overpriced for what you are getting.

Has anyone tried Federal tires? I read...
