At 29k miles, the outside tread of my front tires (stock 17" Conti runflats) are pretty worn down while the inside tread as well as all the tread on the back tires...

Well actually I hit something on the road one night, apparently hard enough to rip a small hole in the plastic undertray, and also scraped off a bit of metal in one of the steering components. At the...

I've used MediaMonkey, which is free and pretty feature rich. You can use it to organize your music collection, make playlists, and it has a decent auto-tag + album art embedding function.

No, I have album art, as well as the truncated non-nav 4:3 display.

I do have BMW assist though. I think I read somewhere that if you don't have BMW assist, you won't get album art.

You will also get album art if you play mp3s stored on a usb thumbdrive plugged in at the center console.
