By the way, keep an eye on your tread wear. Rapid tread wear is the only Achilles heel of the M6 in my opinion...I went through three sets of tires in 18 months with mine.

Correct on both points. The dealer's insurance should cover because it was a legal bailment. I am very sorry to learn that the tech was injured to such a degree.

Well, you just might if you are ever around the Burnt Mills Hills area. I'm about 8 miles south from BMW of Silver Spring, which is where I leased my M235.

The problem you describe will persist in my opinion as long as you continue to ride on 21" wheels. No tire is going to solve that. Consider switching to 19s" until road conditions improve.

Congratulations! You'll save at the pump for sure, but I think you will notice the difference from that twin-turbo V8 you're giving up.
