how difficult can it be for them to both get together increase production which would then increase available inventory, and just make this unacceptable problem go away once and for all?

renting a car or getting a loaner for 5 days for a tire?
why would any car maker choose a tire thats only available by one company?
and when they do, dont they have a responsibilty to do everything in their power to see that those tires are readily available?
the answer is clearly yes. the answer thats still not clear is why they havent chosen to do so.
In my case, it was because I switched them out for Michelin Pilot Sport A/S+. So it wasn't a BMW problem, but my own issue. That's not to say that they wouldn't have it in stock right away with the holidays. It did happen on a Saturday night, meaning that Monday was the earliest that I could take care of the issue.

Trust that all have had a marvelous Christmas, and would like to add wishes for a Happy New Year.

Auch fuer miene Schweizern und Deutschen bruedern und schwestern, Gesundheit und eine Gluckliches Neues Yahr!

Hope some some of you looked into the www.donatelife.net page in my avatar section and decided to become one if you weren't one already, if not that's OK.

To those of you who are donors thank you from myself and other recipients very much for that most wonderful of gifts - another chance at life or an improved life (each donor on average saves/improves the life of over 50 people).

May God bless.

Neat poem. I am a tenor so I sang it to White Christmas--with difficulty. Enjoyed your contributions to the site mayhem. Have a great 2014 to you and ALL Bimmerfesters and to you specifically: do put some cognac in the DECAF!!!
