I'll join!! My fleet includes a 2003 BMW Z4 and an engine-less 1996 BMW Z3 that's currently waiting for an electric motor to go in. The Z4 has an M54 I-6 2.5L, with a 5sp manual, and the Z3 will be recieveing a 100Kw electric motor, 150Kw controller, 30 kw 450 traction pack, and tons of other goodies. You might be seeing an instructable on the conversion in the next year or two... ;-)

Hey, thanks for starting this group, Timmy.

My name is David. I'm from Perth Western Australia.

My pride and joy is my '92 320i (24 Valve - 6 Cylinder) with 150k km's (under 100k miles on the clock), which uses Premium (95 RON) petrol.

Just back from a 1000km trip  in the countryside and I got a remarkable 35.8 MPG at 110kph (Imperial gallon is 4.54 Litres Vs 3.5 Litres for a US Gallon) .

I should see 41-42 MPG on 98 RON fuel.
I think that is remarkable for a 6 cylider car, driven normally !

At the time of writing, here in West Aussie, Premium petrol (Gas) costs AU$1.30 per litre. That is about USD 4.00 a US Gallon.

I've had the car only a few months but have changed the A/C Condenser, all fluids and filters and have changed over to clear tail lights and running lights. I have also had the front resprayed, refurbished Power window switches and replaced the T-Bar auto handle and rear view mirror. Lastly I changed the high beams over to 100watt halogen globes and fitted blue tint argon gas low beams. TIP: if you upgrade to 100 watt High beams, upgrade the fuses from 7.5amp to 10 amp. The wiring on my car does not heat up, but no guarantees on your car...

Now I wish I had taken decent pics so I could have done an instructable, but such is life.

I'm looking forward to reading everyone else's instructables.

Thanks for letting me join your group Timmy !

Ha! I can barely afford a used vw!
Hyundai's are relatively inexpensive for a new car. We have an Elantra` and the warrantee is a life saver for sure.
I want the vw because it is diesel. 48mpg!
That may be, and I guess you don't have the problem in your "section of the country" we do here, but locally, it is nearly impossible to get diesel anymore, and when you can, the prices are so much higher than gasoline it is crazy. At one time the opposite was true *sigh*
