This problem will probably go away after driving and starting the car a few times. Sometimes, it happens to me when I do a tire change-over.

Back in the very old days the valve cap used to have a notched end that was used to tighten the small valve. Now we need a separate tool. Ah, the good old days.

No power outlet in my trunk. I've looked since my old E60 had one in the exact spot you mention. There's an indent but no hole and no outlet. I used to use it for the rear tires and beach stuff.

18" Dunlop SP Winter Sport 3D ROF, 245/45 installed on Style 281 OEM rims. Really like the tires and the 18" size.
Michelin X-Ice are also great tires. Not sure if they come as run-flats.

Like markl53 the entire car shuts down the same way all year. There are no sounds; maybe the odd creak but that may be me exiting the car.
