Not worth dancing with the dealer for 3 more months, standing on principle while you have a constant safety concern, then having them win the staring contest and you've got to pay for it anyway.
Told them I would be back in three months. I will take an emery cloth to them 3 days prior and measure them myself.

If they try to reneg at that point I will ask to see them measure them with me standing there. If they refuse I will take to an ASE mechanic have them measure them (if they are 23.40 or lower) and then sue BMWNA and dealership for breach of contract.

I don't like being bs'd and BMW does this kind of thing way too often.
