As usual I hate to say it but I agree with BJ on pretty much all his points. The F30 is a luxury car and if you don't think so you are slightly out of touch with the average person.

I don't think all the run flats are created equal when it comes to mileage. Definitely the summers will burn out faster, but also Pirellis don't have a tread-life warranty where as Contitentals do...

Tickets for what? A specific race or just to do tourist laps? If you do tourist laps you can wait, they don't sell out.
