Will 255/30/20 front rub on a non-sport E60?

I currently have 245/35/20. That has a slight stretch on my rims. Will I suffer significant ride feel with 30 sidewalks but 255 width?

Glad it helped you out. I still have my E60 and the sunroof is still leak free. Also, yeah, I remember my thumbs' nail bed was sore afterwards. :)

USB port is only used to copy music from USB source to the car's hard drive, not to play from it. You would need the iPod retrofit and coding to get it to work.

Do you have a CD drive installed already? Have you tried burning some MP3 files on a CD and see if it would play? I have an 06' as well and the CD plays MP3s.
