Did I know I had a Sport Package? Hell no. Didn't want one and this is the first I heard that I did. I assumed I got all season tires like my invoice said. I guess it was a good thing I did rent snow tires in Munich.

FWIW, the rear Goodyear
NCT5s on my '08 128i cabrio lasted 23,000 miles. Since they are extremely expensive, I replaced all 4 with Conti DWS.
If there is a Next Time, I'm gonna be much more diligent in making sure my order matches what I actually get. As it was, I was constantly badgering my dealer about problems and misinformation regarding my European Delivery vehicle. I wish I had know about this website and the sponsors before placing my order in NJ.
