Jamal, I have the 92' 9000 CD Turbo. Defenty get the Turbo; you just can't beat that kind of acelleration in a sedan when you need it. It will run on regular (87) but does better on premium. Be warry of the electrical system.... everything under the hood is controlled by computer chips and sensors. And, none of them cheap (i.e. traction control presure switch = $90 + something (and it's no bigger than a shotglass). I'm on my 4th battery in 5 years. I think it might be the strain from running the cooler fan on the condenser after the car is turned off, (that and a failed relay that kept the fan running too long). Otherwise, it's a great car (or I would be interested in the BMW advertised). Now if I could find someone who could tell me why I keep getting electrical spikes that cause the headlamps and dash panel lights to flicker, and advisory lights to come on in my 92, I'ld be grateful. Sincerely, Howard Swaim (
