Get rid of the runflat tires. I can't believe people are willing to accept
that there NO spare tire. Yeah, for the first 4 years you get BMW
assist-star or whatever they call it. Forgetaboutit! I wouldn't want to be
stuck someplace waiting for a $400 spare tire to be shipped to me....
For a short time. How many people are going to catch a peice of
debris on the motorway at 11pm at night and get off at the next exit
to get a tire? They'll run down the road because they know there's no
place to get a tire until morning. That runflat tire is probably good
for 50 miles of so, maybe a hundred. At that rate, BMW ought to make a
nice label to wrap around a can of fix-a-flat and install it in the
toolkit. At least that will fix a small puncture and actually air up
the tire. I've known people to use fix-a-flat and then drive for
months on the tire even though it says on the can that it's not
intended for that purpose.
The rear of the 3 just looks foul, especially the majority of you see
driving around on undersized (standard) wheels. Even some Korean cars
now have better rear-end styling FFS.
About the only decent styling to be found is the nose.
The touring does look better, but again, not on comically undersized
