Asked by Jul 31, 2012 at 10:31 PM about the 1985 BMW 3 Series 325e Coupe RWD

Question type: General

A close second was with the same car when the slave cylinder exploded on the way into work at the intersection of
Edgewater Drive and Lee Road in Orlando. Both sucked!

Needless to say, I got really good at pushing E30's.

I had a battery connection come loose when I was in a busy intersection at rush hour. The car died and I had to pop the hood and run around to adjust the cables before I could get going again. It didn't take me long, but, suffice it to say, conditions weren't ideal and the folks behind me were less than pleased.
