Barring that, I have a non-idrive myself, and I'll be looking to purchase a Dynavin N6 head unit (there's a thread on it here on the forums) and running a backup camera to that.

BMW recently changed how CPO works.

The gist is that, before a certain date, the CPO will follow the car.

Unfortunately, I don't recall the dates effected.

Run flats, however, are another matter. Generally...

What's the confusion? They aren't run-flats, so you do so at your own risk.

Like I said, it's a matter of what you want from your tires. (and what you're willing to pay of course)

Both unfortunately.

Continentals are 6/32s. I'll save two to run on the front axle

Generals, I'll put the two new ones on the rear.

So mismatched via brand and tread depth.
