    X5 G05 (2019 - Current)
    Has anyone found a compressor with flat fix that fits in one of the side compartments or under the floor of the 45e. Now that I have no spare adding this to the car seems smart. Any suggestions?

  6. Pirelli Run Flat Road Hazard Warranty Gutted?

    G30 (2017 - Current)
    My 540 came with the Pirelli Cinturato P7 run flats. As luck would have it, one of the tires developed a sidewall bulge with 6/32 tread remaining. The warranty that came with the tire provides for a pro rated credit for the life of the tire for road hazards. This was one nice feature specific...

    F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Compared to a 2016 F34 328ix I just turned in (had DHP, which included VSS), my new 2019 F34 330ix with Adaptive M Suspension (no VSS) has a VERY numb steering feel - very little road feedback. I find this is the case regardless of driving mode. Both cars were/are running OEM all-weather...

    X1 E84 (2011 - 2015)
    I used to have a 2015 BMW X1, but I recently traded it in for an X3. When I bought the X1, I'd also bought a spare tire and rim, since as you know the car doesn't come with one. I was glad I bought it, because I once had a blow out on one of the run flat tires, on a New Year's weekend when...

    I took the Z3 in today for a balance and rotate. The first one since I got the vehicle. They said the shocks, struts, and springs were ok. On the camber side toward the car they said it was wavey. The suspension is ok. The tires always inflated correctly. They were in balance. What could...
  15. Winter tires: 225/17 vs 245/17 vs 245/18 (E61 550i)

    E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I'm trying to figure out which size to go with, and wondering what others have found works best. And in particular, what provides the best combination of comfort and dry road fun. I suppose that if 225s allow a bit more (stability control off) fun in the wet, that would be a plus too. On the...
