Are you sure you checked the temp in the I-drive window to make sure it is fully pointing to blue? I'm not sure based on your post.

I moved away from run-flats due the improvement in the ride and cheaper tires. I have also never (in 30 years) had a flat that required an immediate spare. My day is probably coming but for now,...

That color looks really nice, even better than OEM silver. I've never been a fan of black rims but a gray to dark grey looks really good to my eyes. :thumbup:

I'm kind of excited now after reading this post. My 2012 535i M Sport is way too floaty and in fast curves, the car leans way more than I like.

Would these sway bars stiffen the car so that it...

I can't agree more with Mike the original poster. I had an 07 530i that I gave up last November for a 2012 M Sport 535i. I can't tell you how disappointed I am with my "new" 535. I so wish I had...
