How was the condition of the top drain hole? I'm curious whether there was large debris or fine dirt.

The method in the video relies on the power of the vacuum to pull down dirt from the top hole.

I had a 428i loaner for a couple of weeks earlier this year. The Potenza S001 225/45R18 RFT's it had were not terrible. I'm not sure if it was the tires or the suspension setup that made them livable.

The femme Fatale analogy only works if the RFTs offer something alluring that the non-RTFS don't.
