Well, good point. What happened was true lust when the salesman brought the car down from storage. It was equipped to my spec, then priced to be irresistible. I was not partial to MB either, but...

And that's my problem with BMW nowadays. They've gone from awesome ARS systems to touchless trunk openers. That's why my next car will not be a BMW.

I wouldn't make a 5 mile round trip with that tire and wheel combination with out a flat or bent rim. Roads here in NY/CT are horrible.
