I enjoy my 435i MSport quite a lot. I sometimes regret replacing my previous 535i with the 4, but only in those instances when a big 4-door saloon would've come in handy for hauling guests or when...

Called my dealer's service department shortly after purchase because I swap winter and summer wheels on 3 BMWs, all with the 17mm lug bolts. I was advised to set torque at 120 Nm/88.5 ft. lb.
