I blew through a set of DWS in the rear if my E66 750Li in about 10k miles - as in to the wear bars. Conti warranties them no problem, went with Pirellis and have been much happier all around.

That's a good looking car. I too jumped from E46 3 series to E66 ownership - definitely the same DNA but in a much bigger, nicer body. Funny enough, I just did the deal for an E46 M3 to sit beside my...

I had the DWS and toasted the rears in 10k miles. Replaced with the Pirellis and they're quieter, smoother and seem to be wearing better.

Car is resting quietly at the dealer waiting for a new secondary electric water pump to be installed, again. I didn't find out if its related to the lack of rear seat heat; we'll see tomorrow.

Short hop or long trip it's the same - no heat with the rest function. I will just take it in. I wonder if this has anything to do with lack of heat from the rear seat console vents?
