Thanks Tim. I hoping BMW isn't just trimming a couple hundred pounds off of the 6er and claiming it's now a 911 competitor. :rolleyes:

Unfortunately, the accident put a hole about the size of quarter through my tire, so I had to call a tow truck. The collision center told me about an M6 that needed a replacement carbon roof that...

No throttle was being used at all, just sliding down the hill with the antilock brakes applied. As I've posted in other threads in the past, the system appears to defy physics and regains traction. ...

Think ice, not snow. Under the most slippery of conditions, HDC actually made a horrible sound while it operated, but as I said it pulled me out of an active slide on more than one occasion.

I used to ride on Dunlop Winter Sports and various Michelin Winter tires. Temps were in the 30 & 40s. The sipes in winter tire treads hurt their dry traction no matter the temperature.

This is what ~$10k of damage looks like on an M6. It required a new rear quarter panel, rear wheel, tire, mirror, dent removal, painting, and removal and reinstallation of the roof.

If the pressure is low, but not flat, means that you are putting more weight on the sidewall which might have an area of nonuniformity.

Why do you have a low tire pressure warning? Does it only come on when it is really cold? If yes, then adding some air is needed and I would also look for a tire bubble.
