    Anyone driven a BMW X3 xdrive28d?

    I have been researching the X3 diesel for my wife's next car. Over on the Bimmerfest forums there are lots of posts saying the car is "unbearably slow" or "good power around town but runs out of power on the highway". At 180/280 for hp/lb-ft its not a hugely powerful engine. The 4 cylinder MB...

    You can run but you can't hide

    Perhaps that title should have been, *I* can run but *I* can't hide.... So as some of y'all may remember after reading my encyclopedia about my Golf TDI problem, I defected for Mercedes. I was also scared off by the HPFF problems and figured Mercedes would stand behind you more. Well guess...

    On the way into work today I realized we're missing something, a Fall Dyno Day! Has there been any talk about this? I would actually like to get a baseline on my CDI since Sheryl's uncle told me I had to chip it. Something about it not having enough grunt over 90 mph. ***Update of interested...

    Rust on top of fuel filter

    I've noticed quite a bit of rust on the top of my fuel filter. Does this indicate anything as to what is happening inside of the filter? My mechanic supposedly changed the fuel filter last Summer, about 15k miles ago. Just curious as my car has been starting rough lately.

    Anyone know of a trusted Ford mechanic in the Mass/NH area. I may need to pick someone's brain who has worked with the Ford Focus SVT motor. I thought maybe someone here could point me in the right direction. I've already joined the Focus Fanatics and SVT performance forums.

    Small Spare tire for MKIV or 5x100 cars
