I took H rated Conti Pro run flats off, $250 each fitted and put on W rated Yokohama S Drives $125 each fitted. Less road noise, better traction when I want it, less air loss and more resistant to...

I read a fraction of posts and threads on this forum but on the whole is pretty good. BMWs are expensive so much advice is going to involve spending dollars or pounds or whatever?

Honestly got no idea what anyone is talking about? Are you all race drivers or are you all racing on the road? To my mind. Having one foot on both pedals might be a problem in an emergency stop?

Maybe something broke when the wheels were removed and refitted? If there is nothing mechanically wrong, then it has to be the tires and you haven't deglazed them properly yet? Tirerack recommend 500...

That was a great read but is that really a design flaw in the car or did you forget to tell BMW how tall you are?

What? lol

I don't get on with math. I just go by how the car runs and my 2007 328xi which currently appears to have sensor problems, doesn't like cheap gas at all. I save a few pennies using a gas reward...

More money for less. I am definitely sticking with my 2007 328xi import. Not interested in the new 4 cyl 328 but. Twin scroll on a 6? Sounds like a plan. 340i X drive. The 3 series is what BMW has...
