New tires were balanced <1,000 miles ago, solid as a rock until 100 miles ago, and I suspect it's just new-tire-run-in and/or a...

And not e60, but a 2003 Z4 with 44K on it, FWIW. No problems with the Z... the usual...

Ahhh... When in doubt, RTFM.

Right there, big as life on page 191 (at least for 2008 535): "Random Play Sequence"

Go into Aux and pick your iPod. Start a song in the playlist, artist, songs or...

Ugh. That's not working in my '08 535i... I say "random on" and it goes to various random menus... not "random mode activated" for sure. Grrrr.

My (pending <24 hours) new-to-me 2008 535i has regular tires and a spare - thank goodness. My old 530i came in the era of "WTH is an RFT?" ... I ripped the run-flats off my Z4 within a week of buying...
