I use either Amsoil Euro formula 5w40. Or Total Quartz (Elf racing) 5w40. Both are full synthetics...

Motul has been good for me, lately though I have run Royal Purple and it has been great.

Yeah I'm pretty sure I remember seeing your e39 too. Had a lip kit with rims and other stuff right? And yeah as for the car I got it at the beginning of the summer but I didn't go to school very often. Are you in the automotive bus. marketing program? I'm in the bilingual program but on co-op for the 3 next terms.

Cdn328is, I think I remember talking to you at Georgian in the summer. I had the silver 328i with the same rims as you. Nice job on the lowering, I just got springs too.
