The bi-turbo E550 is rated the same mpg as my 5, but I think the rating is optimistic. By the way, love the tire-wheel combo on your 535, looks just right. :thumbup:

Great post, you almost had me on the edge of my seat. What's a DISA valve and do I have one on my N54?

My car came with run flat Dunlops, a miserable tire for the Northeast. It's been over 18 months with the Michelins and they make a huge difference. Quiet, smooth and nice response over rough roads.
