Thanks!

Bud, you are a lifesaver. I've been dealing with the same thing, and the dealer kept telling me it was normal. Am going to try your solution and hope for the best!

Thank you CPO

64K miles and had both turbos replaced. If not for the CPO it would have been $5K. I only had to pay the $50 deductible.

Congrats

Knipper,
Congrats on the new car. I've got one just like it, although mine has the all oyster interior. I've also put on a new set of wheels. Hope you enjoy, the car. I sure have.

Patrys, thanks for the information. I'm reluctant to install a combox I'll have to disconnect each time the car gets serviced for a software upgrade. Not sure whether the price is worth the hassle.

My local Discount Tire dealer volunteered that BMW wheels crack more often than any other brand they see. I replaced mine with Beyern wheels earlier this year.

Vision, I paid $1300 total with road hazard insurance, tire disposal, etc. I've had great luck with Discount Tire over the years. And yes, I had the Pzero's. Loud and rough!
