But you also said that your E93 would be your last BMW for a long time. j/k Unfortunately if I get a F30, I would have to lower it. I don't understand why BMW has so large wheel gaps now, but not the competition.

To answer the question, I am not quite there yet but to me it is a painful 12months or so process.

When I was frustrated by the "pothole explosions" issue I did say that it would be my last BMW for a long time. Then I bought a 750Lix but it was 5 years after I bought the E93 so I guess a 'long time" is 5 years.
