My experience seems to agree with yours but for one small but important wrinkle. She never drives my 750, so no problems there, but I sometimes drive her 535. We have 2 profiles set up, and the...

You mean the center armrest in the front seat, right? There should be one in the inside, on the back. There is usually a spring mounted cover over it, but you should see the USB symbol.

You have to have some coding done to enable it. There are plenty of threads on this forum about that feature. A search of those terms should bring up a thread you can use. Good luck.

I have had good luck with Goodyear runflats, they lasted pretty long. I agree with a previous poster that said run flats, in general, get noisier as they age.
