I'm surprised its that much. I had my 20" RF replaced for $500 at Irvine BMW. I'd expect that 19 should be cheaper. But then again, its also time / effort / gas to run around creation to save ~$50...

They should have done this as part of the dealer prep ... sloppy work for an $80K+ car! Be sure to ding them in the review.

This was my idea as well ... the BMW dealership will not do this. Just find a local tire shop to do it for you as a stop gap. It's gotta be better than driving on the sidewalls for a month!

Maybe they can tempoarily plug the tire until the new one comes in. I know that this is not recommended but has to be better than driving around on the sidewalls for a month!

why don't you use the central lock button located in the center dash? Mine was rattling and they replaced the entire assembly. Never tried to manually push it down.
