Alloy mini spare

Thanks, man. Weight savings is always good. Looks like it is available in US for ~US$225 or so.

M4

Great daily driver that is exciting when you want it to be. Has just enough luxury, as well. Like it a lot, more after the Dinan exhaust. And, no TBA failures (yet at least)!

TBA failures out of warranty

No experience in Seattle, but per my older post above I was successful in Portland getting both completely covered out of warranty. It does help to have a service relationship with a dealer, but...

Everything must be done through dealers. Direct contact is worthless. Start with the dealer's service mgr., then ask to have the regional rep brought in if you need to.

TBAs

It is very common for both actuators to go out close to the same time. Mine were a week apart.

This is a known issue. Mine were covered totally just out of warranty. I would ask to get the...

Sorry for the late response. No, seat backs are plastic. Not sure how you would get leather except through Induvidual. Not worth it on the coupe, IMO.

Bright interiors wearing?

Doesn't for me. Had Cinnamon in my E46, Fox Red in my E92, and Sakhir Orange now. Had the previous two 6 years each and never got tired of them. When contrasted with a neutral exterior I think it's a...

Intermediate oil change

I assume you mean the Maintenance Plan, not Warranty. As others said, only major ones are covered. I always do a midpoint change myself. Compared to the E9X, this car uses less expensive oil and...

Stock tire diameters are 26.0"F & 26.6"R. Ideal spare would be in this range. Two options are T145/70R-18 (26.0") &...

Yes, they are very close, but maybe minutely off. Also, they protrude maybe 1/32" which make them stand out a little.
