Take the car on your best twisty road, put it in sport mode, manual shift using the paddles. Then you will see whether it drives like a Chrysler. Check to see if you have run flats or not. The...

A self-indulgent "payment" could mean you can't afford it. I think it is hard to justify the price difference. I have driven one for a day, and although it feels sleeker, it just isn't worth it. ...

Yes, I have heard these are good tires and easier on the rims. They are summer tires I believe. The Goodyears I have are all seasons and decent in the winter. Unfortunately, the sidewalls are too...

I am thinking of non-run flats. I think it will help reduce the pressure on the rim. For those that have done the switch, is the handling noticeably different?

The inside of the rims are the most vulnerable part and the stiffness of the sidewall on a RFT contributes to the stress on the wheel. I think there may be some truth to the rims being too soft.

This is the kind of thing that is plainly a problem. If my car did that, I would have the same reaction you did. BMW has to know that these problems are manufacturing related.
