    Potential employment issue, help please

    Unless you have a copy of an agreement thats states the employee is responsible for specific things ie loss of income etc., then they are flying a kite. However - there may be something along the lines of "property damage" "loss of income" "theft as a servant" "random drug testing" and "wilful misconduct", all of which are normal issues toward dismal. Paying for a company loss as a servant is a bit of a joke - I am trying to image damage by an operator to a 1.75 million dollar crane, the resulting loss in income whilst parts are delivered air freight from Germay ............ really its a DoL advise issue, or does it come under Health & Safety maybe, your health and well being has been affected by their sugestive actions. Good luck, Paul

    e30 cooling system issues after new HG

    Can the HG go on a wrong way or be the wrong one - partially covering a water way ..... Front raised, motor running, cap off, heater on, keep topping resivour, check bleeder, run till hot. Leave cap off. Turn off - check & top up resivour when cold, run motor as normal but recheck resivour only when cold.

    mint cond 89 325 e30 low ks

    A very good reason why I would not put any of mine up on this site, an understanding of that what something is is purely reflected on what an individual is prepared to pay. An individuals opinion is just that, and usually relevant to how they value the marque or their ability to work on their own car bringing it up to the level that this one is. If its straight it will sell - it just takes a bit longer on a depressed market. Good luck !

    New E36 Owner

    Welcome, hope you enjoy the 328 as much as I have with mine. Do a search on your model re "mods" - there is a lot of real practical info there which will save heaps on any knee jerk expenditure, pick off where you need the changes, I did 4 track days, changed something in between each, including suspansion bushes F & R. If you want a quick 328 (depending on model) seriously knocking on the tailgate of M3 time figures look at rear axle ratios, after you tie the front down. Regards Paul E36

    Fuel Type? 91 95 98? Fuel Consumption

    http://www.envirotab.com/Home.htm check the site, it does work, its more than just an octane thing - used it in 4x4 diesels and 3 x BMW's and certainly got better economy over not using it. 97 octane plus a pill IS noticeable !

    First car to be crushed!
