Merry Christmas to F10 owners

My apologies if you do not celebrate the baby Jesus, however hope you find fun anyway...

May your Christmas be bright
May your throttle not be laggy
May your takeoff a be smooth
May your navigation guide you error free

May your fuel pump keep pumping
May your tires be free of bubbles
Adjust your comfort seats most comfortably
May your steering be trouble free

Enjoy your F10, I'm sure you can agree....
It could be worse...you could own an Audi!

Merry Christmas. (It is refreshing to hear Merry Christmas over seasons greetings or happy holidays, thanks for that.)

I feel bad it's not better but too much travel makes me discombobulated.

Enjoy your celebrations all.

I'm guessing by February I'll have another tire replacement coming up.

Joy to the Bavarians.

" Hit a pothole on Saturday, got a bubble, can't get a replacement until Wednesday."

it continues to amaze me that years after both bmw and good year became aware of this specific tire shortage, some are still experiencing this loss of their car for something as simple as a tire.
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.

May this 2013th celebration of the simple, perfect moment bring happiness and joy to all. The birth of a child brings hope and opportunity for a better future and a reason to try and get along.
