To each their own, but I do not plan on keeping my X1 beyond 100K miles (or any BMW for that matter). So I would not even consider one with 90K miles on it.

StopTech slotted rotors and Hawk pads for me, but I was looking for something to handle heat better since I track my car.

Find an independent shop local to the seller and arrange for it to be inspected at your expense. If the seller won't work with you on this, don't bother with any further communication.

Personally I would suggest dumping the run-flats, but if you want to stick with them I would go with the Bridgestone Driveguard.

Wheel Fit

I've been using an offset calculator and think I'll be OK, but does anyone know if a 17x9 ET30 wheel with 255/40 17 tires fit on an E84?
