I really don't know how it compares to the old Silverstone. Would be good to see side-by-side.

Tire plug kit

The M3/4 already come with a compressor in the form of the MMoblity kit (you don't have to use the goop).

Okay, I'm revisiting this subject since I did it originally for the E9X.

Stock tire diameters are 26.0"F & 26.6"R. Ideal spare would be in this range. Two options are T145/70R-18 (26.0") &...

Yes, they are very close, but maybe minutely off. Also, they protrude maybe 1/32" which make them stand out a little.

Regarding the cameras, I find the rear one not nearly as good as the one on my ML; the top view is good only for parking between lines; the front side cameras are of limited use.

Yes, the dealer is the one who needs to make it happen. Some are just lazy or inexperienced.

Expanding insets?

Does not look like the Nutsersts I'm familiar with that are installed with a rivet-gun like device (post #10). What type are these similar to?

Individual colors

Tanzanite Blue just run at Goodwood. Nice color. Canada gets it for same price as other metallic, in Us should be under $2k.

M5 vs. M4

M5 is too big and heavy for me. Sure, it has the power to perform, but it's not tossable in the same way the M4 will be. A lot depends on your needs. There are a lot of M3/4 launch car demos out...
