I am helping my friend - who sold his 97 540i because he needed the money... a month before he was my best man (he was supposed to drive my wife to the church in it, ended up driving her in a CR-V) - to find him another one. And since that one was perfect, he wants one that's even more perfect. » 11/18/14 1:32pm 11/18/14 1:32pm

It seemed to me 2nd gear was a bit short and 3rd was a bit long. You even said you'd need 2nd on your way up. But you didn't mention it on your thoughts later. Is it just a common thing for steep uphills like The Snake or did it just not bother you enough? » 11/17/14 1:06pm 11/17/14 1:06pm
