Never had a problem. They're at least as good as Discount Tire or Firestone or whoever. I believe a couple people have had problems, but you can have problems anywhere.

If both cars were sedans, both are F30. The engine choice has no affect on interior size; so it's possibly you were comparing an older E90 with a newer F30. If there is a "special edition", it's a...

Do you mean the mid-80's 524d ? The LL-04 oils are for 2009 and later diesels in the USA/CA. And current ones (F30 328d), too.

Never heard of a fuel tank having to be replaced before, so it's not a flag.

X5d seems to have been pretty reliable; 80K is nothing. 10K miles is an oil change; fuel filter every 3 oil changes. ...

Don't forget that, because you and the car are in CA, the CA emissions warranty covers most engine stuff until 7/70K.

As mentioned, probably can't be plugged or patched, as it's probably impacting the sidewall.

You have enough tread left, just buy a single new one - don't let the retailer try to sell you 2 or 4.

Did you replace the valve stem when changing tires?

If you did, most likely a bent or cracked wheel. The bend may prevent a good seal on the bead, and as for a crack... never going to hold air.
