Much ado about nothing

It died away because it wasn't important.

Only real problem was when some dodo overfilled when doing an oil change.

I've never seen posted (doesn't mean it hasn't happened) a case of an engine...

for me, the size and the price difference - $15-$20K more for the X3M/X4M - made the difference pretty obvious.

Every car has warts; gotta choose one that fits you best.

225 all round is best. Choose a tire that can be mounted (check specs) on the wider rear wheels.

The general rule is that the TIRE overall diameters not differ more than 1% on xDrive cars. I'm pretty sure that 2% would be ok; nevertheless. A 225/45R17 and 225/55R17 tire differ by more than 2%...

MSport makes no difference. M3 has different suspension etc.
Fronts will fit, and you can use a second set of front wheels/tires on the rear.

17" rims from an E9x fit F3x perfectly well. Just remember that the TIRES don't fit. F3x tires are taller: 225/50R17 rather than 225/45R17.

Yeah, these.

Even if there were grooves that you could feel, it's not a concern. Grit and gravel get in brakes and cause grooves all the time. Cosmetics are not a concern with brakes.
