-I believe the voltmeter will be added gratis for 98 ///M owners. Timing is a big question mark though.
-My dealer told me the '98's were shipped with synthetic oil. Although I've heard dissenting opinions from others about this. Hard to believe it's difficlult to get a straight answer.
: Some data from my '98 M Roadster:
: (1) Parking brake handle developed slack in the first week. BMW is replacing.
: (2) Annoyingly, my clutch pedal will occasionally slip off the left side of the rubber washer it hits on the car floor. I personally think that the washer is just to small. BMW is replacing the pedal.
: (3) I was talked out of using synthetic oil.
: (4) Adding the voltmeter (which is, of course, in tight supply) will cost $325.
