Indeed they are Gary. I cannot use any other tire after this for the 650i. Expensive, but worth every penny when you take a freeway curve at 130mph with a big grin on your face!

It really transforms the driving experience! I wouldn't be surprised if lateral acceperation(G-Force) improves from the tires alone.

Maybe consider a different brand of engine oil? Doesn't hurt to try.

Motul 8100 X-Cess 5W-40 is a good one.

$5,500 to remove the engine and do a complete overhaul is a fair price and the engine will last much longer if you plan on keeping the car long term.
