Mein Auto: 2012 F30, Sport, Silver
I recommend taking it for a test ride. I drove my F30 home and it had a steering wheel shutter ( vibration) between 40-60 mph. Parked it called the dealer and took it back on Monday. It is a Sport model, fitted with Continental tires 225/45R18 . Low and behold right front tire had an internal 6 inch band separation. That Monday night a truck came in with more Sport models, the dealer took all four tires off another car and put them on mine. Problem solved. This time I have Goodyear tires.

]So my recommendation is take it for a spin before you sign the papers.[/B][/B]
