If you get sports package, you will get RFT even in the 5-series.

Yes, one nice bright white light under each door handle: total of 4.

They are quite bright and cast a very cool curtain of white light.

17" wheels with sport package? I got 18" wheels. Is that because he has a 325?

Yes, I am dreading having to replace one of those RFTs.

Guess she wears the pants in the family, doing any house work today?

Sarcasim is my best quality people, and that proves it.


Really!!! Are you sure about that?

Guess if you can dish it out you can take it as well!

Hey...by any chance did you hear that Kaefer and his wife got a very sharp looking new car? I could swear there was a thread about it, somewhere...if you happen to find that thread, perhaps let him know that you're excited for him, the wheels are really nice, and it has a great color combo, etc. That would be great, 'cause I was going to tell him...but now I can't find the fookin' thread...

Oh how cute. How long did it take for you to draw that conclusion? I'm sure you have some good qualities and if Sarcasim is your best quality and that proves it then all i can say is "Wow that's deep brother" You have got to exhibit some more of that emotional strength and verbal agility. While you at it try some capping, cracking, bagging, dissing, hiking, joning, ranking, ribbing, serving, signifying, slipping, sounding, and snapping. While the names vary, the rules of the game remain the same and I cant wait to see your display of all these skills OH Yeah while your at it see if you can think of something positive about Juans ride. If you need a forum to jawjack with me post a new thread and don't hijack this one. Thanks for you cooperation.

Yep we ran into that as well. Man i'm tellin you we rode and drove almost every combination until she was satisfied. Honestly i really enjoy her ride but I would have rather had the 550. The X5 just spoiled me and that 6 isn't quite enough for me. I'm sill drooling over that M5. Oh well such is life. It's a blessing for us to have 2 new BMW's sitting in the garage.

so the question then is why not just replace it with a regular tire and not deal with it? BMW makes a donut that will fit in the trunk a la E46 M3.

The RFTs are probably the best reason to go out and buy a set Michelin PS2s or Goodyear F1s and sell the runflats while they're still new. So long as you have BMW Assist and Roadside Assistance, you're covered in the urban areas. Buy a donut, leave it in the garage, and throw in the trunk when you need to take your E90 on a long trip or on back roads.

Wonder if other tires will fit wheels designed for runflats? Any difference?
