Well, if these things don't firm up, they'll have to go. The DW's (so far) are incredibly soft. They literally wallow at higher speeds. It's not the car - neither the RFT's or or my winter setup was...

Good questions. I also have the PPK, and wondered if going to JB4 would negate it, or whether you could save/capture the PPK as a map? Or even if you have the PPK - can you even use something like...

You're welcome. Hopefully you will be able to get the work done for less. I once had the dealer quote me $1200 to repair the AC. I went to a local shop that fixed it $60. That's right - $60. Some...

Contact a few local indie shops and see what they would charge. Dealers are always the most expensive. And yes, you'd then have you car towed again - but still may be less than the total cost of the...

Nice color! Reminds me a bit of Orient Blue Metallic, which was on my 325. It had a hint of purple in it, which made it a bit different. Needed to keep it pretty clean though…otherwise it just looked...

Good point...I've often wondered about that. Meaning, why the fronts are lower in pressure than the rear.

Isn't the weight balance in BMW's supposed to be 50/50 front and rear? Or, are you...

Brand new tires will still have the silica from the molding process. You need to drive about 100-200 miles for this to fully wear off. Until then, the tires can be a bit slippery, especially when wet.
