I run Michelin Latitude Sport 3 in the summer, 255/50 R19 + 285/45 R19; Nokian Weatherproof SUV 235/65 R17 in Winter. Usually just me in the car, 32 psi all round.

I'm seeing BMW part number 36110007376 for the space saver kit. You should also be able to use an E70 kit on the F15 as the underpinnings are pretty much the same - but double check this before...

So this is new to me - first winter with the F15, and not residing at a significant latitude... The parking heater is a winner! I should have converted my E53 for this option. Lesson now learned,...

Iíve read lots about window regulators failing on the E53 but itís only just happened for me, after 14 years. It was the passenger front, and the black clips had disintegrated. My thought is that...

Congratulations also!
My experience in around 10k miles is that the simple operational stuff is as easy as any modern Beemer, but I keep learning deeper things from time to time. The phone...

I once stripped and rebuilt my E53 pano roof, it’s been OK since all of this. From this exercise I learned that there is some adjustment in the carriers - the panels probably attach with six torx at...

32psi all round on both sets 255/50 19 - 285/45 19 staggered as well as 235/65 17 all round. Usually just me in the car. In the event of higher load, longer trips, etc I’d add 5 psi to the rears.

3.0 diesel vacuum pipes

I had my indy change glow plugs last year - these tend to only last about 150,000 miles on six cylinder BMW diesels, in my experience. While changing all plugs (2 were shot, one was 'lazy') the...

I’ve got the exact same sizes and changed to Michelin Latitude Sport 3. Great in the wet, very quiet tyres. Make sure geometry is good, irrespective of your choice.

Having driven a few F15 examples, and ragged a 40d through woodlands at Goodwood, this was a sure bet. It...
