N20 will be more than enough for NYC traffic situations (fast merges, etc).

I looked at the cars in your signature and I dont see a 6 there or a GC, but I do see 5 so another 5, for me at least (6 years straight in F10), would be really boring. A GC might...

Re: Thoughts from a 528 loaner

2012 or otherwise 528 is dead quiet inside. No shuddering at whatever speed.

For metropolis like NYC it's a perfect mid size ride.

Yeah, as I was browsing for a new tire I noticed that some manufacturers offer that. I kinda need it now so I will just buy a new one. Dealer quoted me $300 (tire and labor). Not bad.
