It's stupid that BMW is putting on crappy tires, but I think you'd be happier with your car after the upgrade.
I have been saying this for a long time now, including the comparison test a couple of months back of the 335i and the S4 Audi. that 335i had all season tires on it. its like getting in the ring with a very good opponent with one hand behind your back for the entire fight. Not only the all seasons are non performance tires, but IMO the 335i especially should have 245/40s all around. Hell at the very list the sportline should.
