Thanks - but to be clear, speed, particularly from 0-60 and 30-60 is very important to me. Didn't realize that 2012 335is had the N55 - are they just different tunes.

I'm looking for a very short term lease - 6 months is ideal. I'm open to any model although I'd like to keep costs down so 3 series would be great. So, if you're looking to get out early, let me...

Thanks again

Thanks Gary - but it looks like the Pirelli M+S (non-runflat) are available for the 20" OEM wheels - is that correct? Do you not recommend the Pirelli M+S?
