Seriously. At this point, my next dream car is a Miata. (not that it's a bad thing...)

Only thing you need to find for wheel fitment is what the stock lug spacing and offsets are for an OEM 18" wheel. (well, the width too, but if the first two doesn't match, it really doesn't matter)...

Pros and Cons really have been laid out for you. We can't make a decision for you however. That's up to your tastes and what you deem important.

It's really a matter of taste.

A good many of us here in the E90 forum have found the F30 series to be a rather lame car. The newer F30 328xi won't steer or handle as well. It might be more...

2013 would likely mean not an E90. So our experiences might not apply.

If they didn't change the sensor, seriously, it's ridiculous. Even coming from my dealer, the sensors are like $20 a piece. $15 maybe if you order them online. Sounds like they just don't want to...

I'd hazard to guess, that is the most likely case. Truth be told, most premium car buyers end up going back to the dealer for most services, and frankly, that will ALWAYS be more expensive.

I risk it in the winter with go-flat snow tires. Only thing I do is keep a can of seal a flat in the trunk as well as an air compressor. So far, so good. Of course, I actually own my car, so I...

Sorta depends. My last BMW was an 2005 BMW X3 that was long past warranty. I believe I had 120,000 miles on it, where the heated seats burnt through the leather. BMW replaced the seats and fixed...

Don't believe there's a relay. They're inherently built into every E90. The difference in the US, is that the switch doesn't include the button to activate them.

From the pics, the tire looks to be maybe 2 or 3/32s shy of the wear bars. The tires are already close to end of life.

If it's a lease, I doubt giving it back with 1 mismatched tire is going to...

You do need force to push it over and into Reverse. It's a lockout sort of thing, so you don't accidentally bump it into Reverse.

Not unlike my old Audi that I had to push down and over to get...

A few variations. You'll get the difference between the vinyl, the cheap leather, and more premium leather.

Yeah, my fault, upon further research, I'm definitely wrong there. Most of the mentions seems to vary from 88 ft/lbs, 88.5, to 90. Guess I'm an idiot in my old age :p
