The issue is not with all RFTs. The issue is with the Goodyear Eagle LS2 245/40R19 tire. If you have different tires you should not be worried.

It is not a bad idea to get the insurance anyway if...

I don't notice an appreciable difference between the seats in my F10 vs. E60 (both with the multi-contours).

When I first got my E60 I could not get comfortable. That car taught me I had been...

In my experience, it is the Goodyear LS2, period. It is not the low profile nor the RFT. I ran Pirelli PZEROs in summer and SOTTOZERO in winter for 2.5 years and never had a single issue with them....

Wouldn't worry about it unless it happens again. Could have been temporary radio interference.

I had this problem on my last car and it did wind up being a bad sensor, but it happened repeatedly.

Maybe it is. But when I open the tank to fill her up, it says use 91 or greater. So I do.

It was common sense to me growing up to only buy what you can afford. I was amazed how many of my friends and relatives didn't share this opinion. They felt a need to live above their...

Congratulations. Great car.

#1 on your list must be to replace the tires unless you never plan on driving over a pothole.
