I went with 275s in the rear and have no complaints. The added straight-line traction is appreciated on my 535d and since I switched to non-runflats the ride and handling are much improved. And an...

Unfortunately your average 245 width tire is a little too tall to be able to stack them on top of each other, and there is not quite enough for them to lay flat. If you are able to fold at least one...

535d ASS Question

Diesel prices are only about $0.20 higher than premium in my area as well. The 10mpg better I'm averaging in my 535d vs my 335i is more than enough to cover the difference. On top of that, how nice...

And on a side note, I bought mine a couple...

Can you tell any difference in performance with the new mats? The additional grip will be nice but I'm worried about the extra weight.

The 335 doesn't get very good gas mileage at all when it's not warmed up and your commute is so short I don't think those numbers are that far off. I only get about 20-21 on my 4 mile drive to work,...

ED in this context means "Efficient Dynamics". We will probably only get one version of the 320d in the US and my guess would be that it won't be the ED version.

Yes, this was Saturday around 10 AM, so I just missed you. Looks like we'll be on the same boat.
