I have a 1997 528i and have spent almost nothing on it except for brakes, oil, etc. I am getting ready to replace the clutch and at $2000. It will be my largest expense on the car. The key with BMWs is either a good independent mechanic or doing the wrenching yourself.
I just tried this too this week and also think I need more fat next. I used a chuck roast that was too trimmed. The meat was delicious but dry.
I think they are fantastic cars in spite of the VW on the grille. If you check some of the online forums you will see that they are pretty reliable, but certain kinds of repairs can be very expensive.

Thanks-we have Carrefour near where I am. ...
I vaguely remember a discussion here about a store in Paris that was similar to Target. Was it Monoprix? Am going to be in Paris over the weekend and needed to grab some housewares. Thanks for the help!

Bangor, ME is a nice town but I think Portland has a lot more to offer.
I am very sorry to hear of your loss. Thank you for the important reminder that time is short for all of us and we need to make the most of it.
