WTB: F30 TPMS Sensors

I'm looking for a set of OEM TPMS sensors for my 2012 328i sedan. I don't really care if they are new or used; just working. I'm wanting to put these on my second set of wheels. If you have...

When I had gotten he dealer down in price as much as I could, I asked them to throw in tint. They initially said no, but as I politely excused myself from the conversation, they relented and threw...

I can't speak for the OP, but as a resident of the barren desert wasteland that is Phoenix, AZ, I still prefer the DWS over summer tires from a pure longevity point of view. Prior to having the DWS...

I thought the same thing too at first. In every other BMW I had with power seats, it was a simple process. Push down on the back of the rocker button and the rear cushion would move down; pull up...

Yeah...I guess it would help if I told you what tires.

I was referring to the Conti DWS'. Good grip, quiet ride and nice even wear...even with an Eibach Pro-System drop.

I had two consecutive sets on my GLI and plan on shodding my F30 with them whenever I decide on new wheels.

I agree with you about the E39 manual. My Dad had a '97 540i 6MT and while I loved the engine, that was one car that could've used a short throw kit. Switching between my E36 and his E39 was quite...

Sadly, I never got to drive an F30 with a 6MT. Out of the 3 BMW dealerships in the Phoenix Metro area, not one had a manual-equipped car. I even checked the Tuscon dealer and nothing. I was in a...

Is the issue in all driving modes? i.e. Comfort, Sport, Eco? I notice a little firmer downshifts when I'm in Sport/Sport+, but I wouldn't classify them as clunks.

I couldn't find the "wink-wink" emoticon when I type that disclaimer.

BTW, I have the Conti's on my car, but there is a patch kit and air compressor in my trunk storage compartment.
