Get your receipts for the work done and show the appraiser.

That should help with your valuation. Also go to Edmunds and see what they appraise your car for. Good Luck!

I would vote yes! I have them on both my Z3 and 325xi

for summer driving. Excellent grip wet or dry. Get them good and hot and they really grip.
Have fun with your tires!

Hello there! I live in Holliston, Ma. If you want to meet

more of your fellow enthusiasts, you might want to check out the Boston Chapter of BMWCCA. Pretty active group, but could use more driving get togethers.

FMW has been the best so far, but Norwood was OK
