My dealer just said that Bridgestone Turenza 245/40/19 are available in runflat all weather. Interesting that the Bridgestone site does not list this. So, did BMW get Bridgestone to do a runflat...

Last post was 4/24/12! Does this mean that the issues are slowly going away? Did BMW and Goodyear quietly come up with a fix? Maybe it's the Spring/Summer months with less pot holes?

I've not had mine replaced, but I have a very small chip that is barely visible. I decided to ignore it as long as I can because I do not want to have noise or leaks after replacement.

I think the "normal" suspension without sport is somewhere between comfort and normal modes on cars with sport package. I really like the lack of body roll in my sport equiped 535i X drive.
