I ended up going with SO/carbon roof, black 19" wheels, and full black leather. Happy with the choice and not second guessing myself. They finished building the car today, so hopefully I'll have it...

I've found a bunch of posts about problems with these specific wheels. Assuming that design is weak, do others have problems with bent or cracking rims on these cars?

The wheel repair guy told me that most of the BMWs, Audis, and M-Bs have wheel problems with the larger wheels and lower profile tires. But I think those 230 wheels are particularly weak and probably...

M4 wheel strenght

I'm getting rid of my 335 and getting into an M4, ordered with the black 19" wheels. The 335 has the sport package and optional (cast) 230 wheels. I think I cracked and repaired or replaced 5 of them...

Just realized one other reason to get it. The MLB app is CarPlay compatible so I can listen to out of market ball games.

Do I even want Apple CarPlay?

Hi. I just ordered a 2017 M4 for August production. It will come with iDrive 5.0. I added Apple CarPlay as an option, but now I'm thinking I may not need it.

It appears CarPlay takes you out of...

First, you don't need to spend $85k on an M4. You can get a good one for under $70k (stick/extended leather/19" wheels).

Separately, a big factor for me is the rear seat room. I don't need a huge...

For bad roads, you can't really use the 340 without hassle unless you swap out the RFTs. I live in the Bay Area and have 19" wheels on my 335 (tossed RFTs awhile ago) and I've still broken 5 wheels....

Stick is lighter, simpler, more reliable, and for me more fun. I don't trust the reliability of a DCT. My current 335i has 125k mi and a stick, and it's on the original clutch, which still feels...

Just ordered M4

Even though my 335i coupe (stick/sport) is mint, it has 125k miles so I decided to upgrade.

My short list came down to, believe it or not, M4 or F150 Super Crew cab with 5-1/2 bed. I loved the...

TPMS type and 230 wheel problem

For me it came down to the S5 vs the 335, both 6-sp. If I lived in a cold/snowy climate, I would have chosen the S5 (I don't think you can get a 335 x-drive 6-speed). But I chose the BMW because (1)...

For the older 3-series, the TPMS detect differential in rotation and are in the hub. For the newer ones (2008 and newer, I think), the wheels actually have pressure sensors inside the wheels.
