Fair enough. I guess I just made my point because those were OEM tires on my 335i, so I was comparing stock to stock performance in the rain and attributing at least a portion of the 335i's rain...

Only one reason - space. I needed more space and my E90 wasn't cutting it. I love my X3, but miss my E90 335i, too.

I have the OEM Goodyear LS2 tires on the X3. Ok in dry, ok in wet, terrible...

I drove a RWD 335i for several years, in all sorts of weather here in the northeast. During heavy downpours, it was one of the best cars I've ever driven. Even more stable than my heavier, AWD X3. ...

I had the same thing on my 2014. It stops leaking out after about a month (in my case). Polish or wax removes it. It does appear to be some sort of grease or coating used in manufacture or shipping.

I have a 2014 28i, coming from a 2008 E90 335i with a manual transmission.

The 35i (N54, but the N55 is very similar) was an amazing engine. Money no object, get it. It's not the 0-60...

I've got a 2014 M-Sport with the LS2 tires. They've been fine in dry and wet conditions - no complaints at all. In the snow, however, they are dicey. Like RhoXS said, getting started is fine, but...

Everybody's monitor will be different, so I agree about trying to see it in person, but for what it's worth, on my monitor the picture above is pretty accurate. My 2014 is Carbon Black/Mojave. LOVE...

Love it in my 2014 28i. Comfort is perfect for everyday driving, and Sport mode is intense for the backroads. I think the base setup is pretty good, so I wouldn't say DHP is a must have, but it's...

I think Liverman was likely thinking of camber, caster, and toe, which are alignment-related and can affect handling and impact on-center feel a bit. In this case, I don't experience anything like...

I have a 28i m-sport and love the look and thick steering wheel and sport seats, but I'd say definitely not a must-have. It is more cosmetic than anything (unless, in Canada, the suspension is...

Another vote here. Have had Safelite replace two windshields with no issues. One had an integrated rain sensor, so I insisted on OEM parts. Cost a bit more, but they sourced through the dealer and...

Both are great cars, and money no object, the S4 is definitely my choice. At $56K for the S4, though, I'd start thinking about a CTS-V. What's $5K more at that point? Slippery slope. =)
