They're taking the car back. You want them to give you $7400 in free options on the next one too.

Thanks, seems like Comfort+ is a waste, don't get the reason for it.

I agree about the 2014 HP increase, didn't think it would be a big deal but it is very noticeable over my 2011 550.

Yeah, the Goodyear LS2 definitely seems to be a big part of the problem.

Like you say, get rid of the Goodyears, increase the aspect ratio and you'll have fewer problems.

If you want to reduce the bubble issue you really have to increase the sidewall height and go to a 45 series tire.

That's not correct. The 45 series 19" tire is taller.
The diameter of a 245/35/20 tire is 26.8"
The diameter of a 245/45/19 tire is 27.7"

These tires don't rub on my 2011 550ix, not an M sport though.
The only difference is the height, the width is the same as the 40 series LS2's.

The difference is 3.5%, not a big difference but no your odometer/speedometer is not re-calibrated.

As some have said they find their speedometer is more accurate with 45 series tires.

45 series tires are not immune to bubbles they just get far fewer of them because of the higher sidewall.

If you live in the Northeast with potholes the size of sinkholes you need 90 series tires...
