Unusual tire wear driver side outer edge

Another reason why run flats are garbage, I have 20k on my non-rfts, I have probably another 6-7k worth of tread left on my tires easily. Why must BMW use them :(

Just paperwork stating whether it was/wasnt in an accident, and the odometer is accurate and true.

Just thought I'd chip in my 0.02, I had a '12 740 (I6) which had injector issues, and they started at about 700 miles IIRC, all the way up until it was lemoned ~7-8k miles.

Mind if I ask why dropping the Lux Seating? It comes with ventilated seating, maybe up in the bay area it's cool enough without them, but down here in SoCal it was 101F yesterday :cry:

Good luck...

If I were in your shoes I'd contact a forum sponsor and have them ship it to you, it would be much cheaper.

Maybe they just didn't include them in that tester?
