BMW Base Support System (Roof Rack) Question

I have it and it takes 5 minutes once you get used to it. I leave it on for weeks at a time just out of laziness. Works great. Kayak on top too. Actually can put kayak and bike with the right...

I am not sure what to expect. Without a frame of reference, I can say it's not quiet. That's my biggest disappointment. But the price was right and it is easy to put on and take off.

I second the base rack. I use it extensively with my bicycle and my kayak. If I bought the car then I would consider the hidden hitch. It would not carry a kayak, however. Here are some pics of the...

My car was shimmying and they replaced one wheel. It's still not right and they said 2 others were bent but remained within spec. So it's not just air but they have some required deviation to replace...

No question. The reduced torque makes this an ideal snow mode. I used it extensively on unplowed and under plowed roads when I had to get to work. Combined with DTC and xDrive I had no issues.

Agree. It worked for me with my 2010 535. That car had awful brake dust and this stuff helped. My 2012 335 cab and my current 428GC aren't as bad. But I think this AA stuff was great. Just spray it...

Do all BMW have negative camber in the rear? That would make it difficult to rotate as the tires wear differently

That is hundreds of dollars more than I paid for my Tire Rack set. They came balanced. I have a hard time believing that they will charge for balancing at that price.
