They were on the 18" "M sport" rims on the 2010 535. I've heard that if we didn't like them then, it's going to be even worse on a larger/heavier vehicle with larger rims.

Did you feel that the 35i M-Sport was "too stiff"? Having had it for our first weekend, I do like the overall handling. We did go over a speed bump that was a bit rough but wasn't too bad.
