I paid $1250 for BMWs tire and wheel plan on a new 2013 M3 vert. 5 years. I think the aftermarket plans require a lot of research for the ins and outs (where they can get out of paying). The $1250...

Mine came from the dealer installed as new and wasn't painted black. I would think it would look way better in black. Who does that painting (in the Bay Area?)

Was going to lease. But decided since I know the car so well with the 335 and the M3 was my dream car, I decided to buy. Given I only put on 9000 miles a year, I'll have it for a long time.
