When I test drove the 6-series with 19" run flats, I thought it was just fine. So I would stick with them - or get the kit as noted.

How often do you get flats there?

Correct, for 2013/2014, the 650 with the M Sport package came with the M Sport Exhaust (probably the best feature of the car). I think for 2015 (or possibly 2016) all models come with it (all V8...

No individual on the M2

The plant (Leipzig) that makes the M2 (and the 2 series) can not do individual colors.

Drove the S6

Several times. I liked the car a lot, but ended up with the 650GC and here is why (in order)

1. Steering feel. The Audi felt over boosted at slow speeds. Every time I drove it, I was like wow,...

Well that was quick!

Truth be told, I'm thinking of downsizing as well. Not that the car is terribly expensive - it is just really big!

I'm on the wait list for the M2, wondering what that...

Out of curiosity...
What would a new lease put you back? You would have a full warranty and maintenance - and if you can get the right price, maybe it would make more sense to just re-lease?

Right, the DWS tires are all-season and should not be compared to a summer sport tire in terms of handling.

I'm sure you are well on your way with some new winter tires - my advice however would have been to find some OEM 19 wheels with the all seasons that come on them. They do just fine here in Chicago....

The 19s ride just fine. As pointed out, I suspect your shipping blocks are still in - for some reason, with this car, they keep getting missed. You can look for them yourself.

Of note, the 550 does not have this delay. When I drive my friends 550xi it feels sooo responsive compared to my GC. I don't understand why the 6-series is mapped differently?

While I have never driven a 6-series with the Adaptive Drive, I suspect it is the one option that would really make the car feel lighter - so nice choice.

Of course, it is not Imola Red... ;)

I see some posts that BMW changed the TPMS around March 2014. Check on realoem.com to be sure and compare your cars production date with the date of the production of the donor cars' wheels.
