And one with the studded winter tires and e65 wheels:

I have had a fair bit of problems with the car:

- The radiator was leaking (replaced)
- Side view cameras were not working properly; left camera view was upside down... reprogramming corrected the issue
- The tandem pump for Dynamic Drive and Power Steering needs to be replaced.

Otherwise the ride's been good :drive:

Nice 7, thanks for sharing!

I'd have taken a diesel in a heart beat but at the moment BMW North America doesn't sell them here :(

How often do you need your winter tire/wheel setup?

cuteeee! ) i'm diesel powered too and spend 7-9 liters per 100km unless city 12l

235 wheels are 18 on the first shots? I think to get my winters the same.

I only need the winter tire setup once a year. From Nov to Apr :cry:

The summer tires are 245/45-19 & 275/40-19.

During winter, the speed limit here is 100 on highways and 80 elsewhere (km/h), so my consumption is around 6,3 l/100 km (37 mpg (US)). During summertime, the limits are 120 and 100 so the consumption goes up to 7,5 l/100 km (31 mpg)

Very nice. I love that color as well!

Ditched the e65 winter wheels. I found a nice set of F10 18" wheels at a decent price.

looks perfect!

Thank's, but I guess we all agree that F01 and 18" wheels are a bit sad combo, but it is not wise to use any bigger studded tires...

Let's say that it looks OK now, considering :tsk:
