One lingering horror story from my winter tire swap over. If you've got a 2011, make sure you know if it was a post September build because BMW apparently changed the operating frequency of the TPMS sensors in the late year build. I drove off with the wrong sensors installed in my winter tires and had the TPMS malfunction after a couple of miles. My tire guy figured it out, put the new (proper) sensors in and after driving around for 10 or so miles, the malfunction cleared and I was able to reset the TPMS.
