#330 of 379 Another Topaz

I bought my Topaz/Tan/Tan 2000 2.3 Z in April. It was my "reward" for hitting my income goal 6 months straight. It took me almost 10 years to hit that goal, so the car is real special to me. Plus it's a blast to drive. I want to know if anyone has done any modifications to improve performance.

I live in Conshohocken and I work in Malvern (Great Valley corporate center) so I know Devon Hill. I can't believe they don't offer loaners... I though pretty much all luxury brands (lexus, BMW, Merc etc. offer loanders now days...) I bough mine from Don Rosen BMW. Past Wednesday, I had to get my bad alarm sensor replaced and they gave me 528 sedan for the day.

Thanks. My daughter bought an A4 at Don Rosen, so I know loaners are expected (altho their Audi garage now gives you Enterprise rentals). We'll see about Devon Hill when I go in for my 1 free oil change this fall.

Bought my 1998 2.8 silver/black roadster in March. Already put about 8K miles on it. Never really cared about driving before, but you can't not want to drive this car. Nothing cures a bad day at work better than the feeling the wind blow through your hair on the twisty roads home.

Hi, my name is Robert and I live in MD. I own an 00 Estrroil Blue/Blue/Bue M Roadster. We purchased our car in August of 99 and have just over 8400 mi. Great car!!!

We have an '01 silver with black. Has anyone out there bought any of the BMW car care stuff? (car cover, spray for the soft top, leather cleaner) We are just wondering if it's worth the money or if we should save $$$ and time by going to the local auto parts store. Any suggestions?

Good morning! I just took delivery of a 2002 Sapphire Black coupe on the 2nd of January. Made the mistake of using uit this past weekend when we had a surprise (at least to me) storm. The performance in the snow really impressed me. Much better than expected. Drove about 90 miles in slush, snow and ice with narry a problem (except for the dirt)
Really like the car - can't wait for dryer weather so I can get to see what it can do.
Am I the only new owner since last September??

Does anyone know what the velcro strip is for on the upper side of the rear window? Also, other drivers have told me to purchase the covers for the fog lights because they are easily broken by road debris and expensive to replace.
