on the cusp: which wheels to buy?

I am just like OP. I have a 2010i x with M package. Need winter wheels.
Was thinking I would buy 245/40R18 Bridgestone Blizzak WS70's and the wife insists I buy BMW wheels for these winter tires. ...

I got to where I had mastered driving it, but my wife hated it for how it shifted. She drove it once... in S3.
I loved it in S5 (or manually), sport mode and traction control off, except for the...

Not acceptable for a daily driver

I see the smiley face, but...
The M3 would unexpectedly buck when starting off. It would sometimes jerk horribly when coming to a stop. 2002 was the first year for the SMG, if I'm not mistaken. I...

Bye-bye M3 with SMG

I sold my 2002 M3 and bought a 2011 Scooby WRX STI six speed. I couldn't be happier!
I used to race in SCCA. The last manual that was similar to either of these cars was my '93 RX-7 R1. I did not...

Leasing when you drive a car very hard

I leased my '93 RX-7, R1. Being a new model and the reintroduction of the rotary engine in a new package, with twin turbos, I opted for a four year, 60K lease. While leasing it I had turbos go out,...

Not wanting "winter" gloves

Yes, cold weather gloves come in pairs, but I wanted uninsulated. Once in the car I don't need insulated gloves, just a little buffer from the cold wheel till it warms up. I want an "almost...

Specific recommendations on Golf, batting racquetball gloves?

While I have been managing with two different colored, oddball, racquetball gloves for the colder days, when the wheel is pretty chilly, I want something better, and not in bright purple!
Any...

This has been a valuable forum for me now that I have a 2002 M3 and a new 535xi with M package.
I like the SMG. I used to ride a lot of motorcycles and it seems somewhat natural. I don't like the...

Nailed it! I burnt up the fuel pump!

Thanks! I think the mystery is solved. I overheated and damaged the pump from running too low on gas, too long. It was capable of pumping just enough gas to limp along if you consistently drove it...

I know regular is not what it is meant to use

I got that, but I was more wondering if it could cause a problem for a few miles. I thought not. I know they have knock sensors and that the ECM will retard the timing to compensate and that power...

Not a phone call or a letter! A few days ago our 2010 535xi + M package, with just over 6K miles, started acting up. My wife, who normally drives very calmly, loaned it to her son for a couple of...

Hoisting hardtop using roof rack mounts?

Hello folks. This is my first post. I just bought my first Bimmer-a 2002 M3 convertible.

The wife can't help me remove the hardtop so I am rigging a hoist in the garage. There are the four...

New 2002 SMG owner

I just picked up my M3 with 21K on it. I am over 60 and when I was 21 I raced in SCCA for three years. I also drag raced, rode many big bikes and soloed in my early 50's with an RX7 R1 (and won)....
