Particularly in reference to my 2012 35d I've had since October last year.

I have posted about idiosyncracies of its shift quality, and sluggish responses before, but I usually put too many...

And the last tank back in city commuting mode - 24mpg. It's running so much smoother and more responsive now after a long trip.

Another X5d with 20s :)

Consider the quality of roads where you are. If they're pretty good then 20s may be OK. Here in LA, I'd rather have the 19s honestly, but switched to non run-flat tires...
