make sure you get winter tires or you'll end up at the side of the road hehe...

gas pedal feels normal and moves quite easily and lightly...

does your AC work?

168 hp... 170 is euro version but how well it runs will depend on your AFM, distributor, rotor, wiring, plugs, o2 sensor etc...

get ready to get your hands dirty... LOL

sounds like you have a defective pedal. A new one is $800.00.

Unfortuntly in order to change the pedal you have to lift up the engine about 2-3 inches.

Honestly man, what Zimmie said is too true, especially if this is your first E30, you may jus not be used to it but all E30 gas pedals are "harder" then you may expect, coming from other cars.

My kick down button was stuck, it wouldn't go in, so the pedal wont go all the way down. It was seized, i eventually got it free.

Lube it up a bit, that might help......but ya they are harder to push

You should be able to get a set of 14" bottlecaps with good tires for ca. 250.00 or rims alone for around 100.00 or less.
