I would add to my initial performance observations that I no longer have to turn up the stereo to drown out the tire noise. Much quieter. Tramlining is also a thing of the past.

I would agree...

I have learned to always check my tire pressure after having any of my vehicles serviced as none of the shops seem to do it right. Typically they tend to overinflate.

I agree. Redline only after fully warmed up. I regularly redline both my cars. There is no ill effect. BMW made these engines to be driven hard, not babied.
