I've tried the search function with no luck.
I will not be getting an owner's manual with my car so I have questions.
Is there a page that I can reference technical specs such as what oil weight to be using in my 328 as well as capacities.

What are you guys running for motor oil?

I use the BMW (5w30) synthetic motor oil. Dealer sells it for $7/liter. Sometimes I also use Mobil 1 SuperSyn whenever I see a good sale at Canadian Tire or Walmart ($25 for a 4 liter jug).

Cool.
Next question.
Since I don't have the manual how do I set the clock time.
When I test drove the car both the stereo clock and the clock in the gauge cluster were reading --:-- AM.

How are they set??

Thanks for the help so far guys.

you can download a softcopy of your owner's manual from the bmw website....but i think you have to register for the owner's circle....
