I'd recommend dropping them on the heads of the BMW Engineers and Good Year Execs who refuse to admit these are problematic tires.

Or you can also list them here for folks coming off a lease.

The 5 and 7, from the front and side, still require me to do a double take...and I've had 2 F10s! The X4 is noticeably more "fish bowl" looking compared to the X6. X6...

LOL > lack of heated steering wheel and no surround view/top down cameras kept me away from the Q5. I'd like to think I'm not a prima donna, but it's nearly impossible to win that argument.

Here's why: you know who gets to appreciate how cool your LED lights are? Other people. And you also use them maybe 25-30% of the time (most people drive during the day).
