I made it a condition of my purchase. I told them I would not lease another BMW if it had the Goodyear Eagle LS2 245/40R19 tires. They agreed, and delivered the car with Bridgestone Potenza RE960AS...

To be fair, the problem is specifically with the Goodyear Eagle LS2 in 245/40R19 size. These tires should be avoided at all cost if you plan on driving on non-pristine roads.

In fact the Bluetooth in my 2011 was superior to my 2014 which has...

This car had issues with the high pressure fuel pump. Mine had to be replaced twice.

I believe they have since issued a recall. If so, then you should be covered. Nevertheless it would be wise to...

I could not get Bluetooth Audio to work at all.

Then one day I "fixed" it by launching Pandora. It worked, and then after that, all other audio apps worked too.

Strange coincidence maybe, but...

I have those tires in 245/45R19 size and they are great. I cannot discern any such noise.

I seriously doubt it is the tires. How do they perform at high speed? Do you feel any vibration?

If you have 20K miles and never had a bubble you must drive on impeccable roads.

Most people wind up replacing the GY LS2 RFT long before they wear out.

Why does the dealer need to make extra profit just because you are leasing? How you finance should not matter. The dealer makes his profit on the sale of the car.
