What the...?! I'm gone for part of a day and a whole new conversation erupts in here.

rockstar143 Color me a Soccer Mom, today. It worked and I was able to get the tire repaired. That being said, I would rather not have to use it again.

Majofo Actually, the back tires are the brand new ones the dealership had put on last week...I got a nail in one of them last night. Discount took care of everything today, no problem.

Really, SamDoe1 , the F10 has been pretty solid. The warranty on the HPFP got extended out to 120k because of an early problem. Otherwise, you hear of the occasional valve seal problem consistent with the issues on the lesser sibling engine, the N63.

Michelin Pilot Super Sport. I prefer Pilot Sport 4S, but I'll just tear through these first.

Yeah I think you will have those PSS for a while before you can kill them unless you are doing daily burns.

The E60 M5 makes every Alfa Romeo ever made look like a freaking Honda or Toyota in terms of reliability.

Yes, that's exactly right. Your tires will not slip on any slopes after the tune.

Whoa!!! Congratulations Tim! Fantastic color

A coworker had a F10 before his current F90 and that thing was a BLAST. I would get in a lot of trouble with that much power

I was bored so i was just browsing and just happened to come across this god damn.... I think it is very reasonable at $3k... considering a set of wheels will cost just as much if not more...

They've all been for a ride. The oldest was there when I test drove it, had it inspected and bought it. He thinks it's the best car I've ever owned...I think he's trying to get the E93 out of me. The other two kids loved it as well. So far, so good with the kids.
