+1 for dedicated winter tires mounted on wheels. It's a yearly ritual to change them in my garage. Get a good jack, 17mm socket and torque wrench (120Nm or 88.5 lb. ft.), turn up some good tunes and...

My 2012 F10 535i had the Sport package with dynamic (i.e., adjustable) damping and 19" wheels. In the winter, I ran slightly narrower tires on 17" wheels, same offset. The narrower tread cuts...

I agree with Elk, but add the Sta-bil before pumping gas so it mixes well. Then drive it for a while to ensure it gets in all the lines and has run through the injectors.

Not the same car. 2" lower center of gravity, wider track front and rear, and stiffer chassis, to start. Much respect for the F30...just wanted to point out there are differences.

You don't have to go staggered - you can go "square." With the MSport brakes you'll have to go with 18s. I followed Tire Rack's advice and went with 225/45R18 Dunlop SP Winter Sport 4D on my '14...

I use Auto and simply adjust temp and fan speed to preference. The AC dehumidifies, which is helpful to reduce fogging in the winter and cool rainy days.

No, you just get the 19s. It'd be nice to have a spare set of 18s in the trunk though wouldn't it? Hopefully they're just charging us the difference between the 18s and 19s, eh?
