Ditto the Bridgestone question, but they also have a lower performance RE97 AS RFT on the Infiniti Q50.

Also could you indicate the models and the tire size you tried. The 19" probably being...

Except, are there any replacement shocks for the xDrive models.

On the automatic, isn't it the same ZF used in various Audis and Chrysler models?

Didn't find the analysis there. Post 1 references something that doesn't seem to be there. I don't see any standard equipment missing on the 530d that accounts for the price difference.

BMW is charging a $1500 more that 535i for the 535d nee 530d. The real 535d costs 7000 more than a 530d; that would have put it way out of range. The 535i cost 3350 MORE than a 530d compared to the...
