Another beef of mine with BMW is those darn RFT's. They can claim they have smoothed out the suspension all they want, but RFT's run like tanks to me.

The only one that truly benefits from RFT's is BMWNA. One less tire to supply, reduce mfg process, plain cost cutting while still charging you as if the vehicle had one.

People say just change the tires no problem. Yes problem as the first time there is an issue BMW techs will all blame the tires you changed.

If they wont move with tires, they certainly won't do an MT tranny. Sorry guys.
2013 S4 Loaded (and NO RFT's) Awesome is an understatement
