Well that was quick!

Truth be told, I'm thinking of downsizing as well. Not that the car is terribly expensive - it is just really big!

I'm on the wait list for the M2, wondering what that...

Out of curiosity...
What would a new lease put you back? You would have a full warranty and maintenance - and if you can get the right price, maybe it would make more sense to just re-lease?

Right, the DWS tires are all-season and should not be compared to a summer sport tire in terms of handling.

With the 20s (the OP has the 19s), the ride can be tough - it doesn't bottom out of course, it just loosens your fillings when hitting a pothole :)

I'm sure you are well on your way with some new winter tires - my advice however would have been to find some OEM 19 wheels with the all seasons that come on them. They do just fine here in Chicago....

The 19s ride just fine. As pointed out, I suspect your shipping blocks are still in - for some reason, with this car, they keep getting missed. You can look for them yourself.

Of note, the 550 does not have this delay. When I drive my friends 550xi it feels sooo responsive compared to my GC. I don't understand why the 6-series is mapped differently?

While I have never driven a 6-series with the Adaptive Drive, I suspect it is the one option that would really make the car feel lighter - so nice choice.

Of course, it is not Imola Red... ;)

I see some posts that BMW changed the TPMS around March 2014. Check on realoem.com to be sure and compare your cars production date with the date of the production of the donor cars' wheels.

JavaScript prompts

Yesterday while on the site using my PC, I had numerous "do you want to open 645463.js ?" Prompts. The info before the .js was always random. It appears the site has been hacked, again.
