Typical. I guess they did because you did not buy tires from them. I use Tirerack recommended places when I buy from them and also ask the installer what kind of Hunter machine they have and that they do not scratch my wheels, if they do, they will be paying for replacement.

This. I bought 4 brand new competition pack wheels for my M3 along with brand new PS2's and took to dealer hoping they would do a good job since they deal with bunch of bimmers. When i picked the car up, all four wheels had a scratch all around the wheels from the install, you want to know about rage, you should have seen me then.

Majority of places use the Hunter tire changer machines. The cheaper (could be still Hunter) machines can scratch the wheels. Check the Hunter website for more.

So just to update you guys on the saga: called the owner up and gave him a piece of my mind this AM. He was very apologetic. Got the tires installed. They detailed the interior of the car. When I walked in to pick it up, everyone was "very sorry" lol. Anyways it all ended well. The interior thankfully looks fine. The rims are without any scratches either.

The 275s look a little funny on the rear wheels. I will post pictures in the next few days. Driving on the winter tires feels different...feels less responsive. Maybe me..

For anyone considering changing the front reflectors from the ugly orange..do it. I got body colored ones from IND. The more I look at it the better it looks. Got a lot of compliments for it.

This thread is all over the place but just a quick comment on color and radar.
I was drawn to the Gray and the White and the Blue. Went with Blue and have never looked back. It does get a bit of attention but all complimentary. There are enough Blue cars on the road these days that it does not stick out like a sore thumb. However BMW absolutely nailed this Blue and it always looks great.
I had the top of the line Passport radar detector and Laser Interceptor installed Day 1. After about 3 months I pulled the Passport out. The noises were annoying and at least in Atlanta, all they use is Laser to write tickets. Are Radar detectors not like VCR Players or Beepers these days?
