thought I should post some good news, the engine is getting better and better just like the 2.8 I had. The exhaust note is also getting better and the car is feeling great.
I bought a 2.8 in march 1997 and it was the best car I ever owned. It rattled and I had the transmision replaced, the differental replaced, the roof replaced and the entire rear suspension replaced, both sides including the springs. Once I got this car perfect, with 28k miles I sold it and bought an M Roadster. In the interim we got used to the BMW feel and after driving everything on the market we spent more than we had at the time and bought a 98 328is. The build quality was the best with no work other than a bad door handle that sticked.
I would like to tell you that the current M Roadster that I am driving meets the quality of the 328is. God has been good to me and both of these cars are fantastic, now the rest of my family is buying BMW. I should point out that I use this car for a 70 round trip on mountain roads every day as my daily driver. It is not a garage queen.
Happy White M Roadster
