Why is the FOB so fat?

I'd pay $300 for a smaller FOB. I remember an add (Merc??) talking about packing the FOB electronics in a credit card sized case that you could keep in your wallet. That would be cool.

The 2012s are very guilty too :mad:

If you go with the non-runflats there are lots of threads on choices. I put Michlein Pilot SS on my 535i GT. Massive difference and so far great wear.

I guess that makes sense. But it has been over a year since I bought the GT.

I guess they wanted to make sure I was keeping it! :)

Could you use it on the whole hood?

I wanted to get my hood done when I had the front done. They didn't have a wide enough piece of the film and I was worried about the line between the sections showing up.
