One thing I notice though. The stock 18" has conti3 runflats on and they felt more comfortable than the 20" non runflat pzero I currently have on. I can feel more vibrations and hear more road noise on the pzero. Looks like runflats have come a long way!

I like the aggressive pattern of those PZero's. I have the Good Year Excellence, and although I have never been a fan of Good Year they have good grip. But I notice certain bumps can be transmitted harshly especially in the rear. Personally I could think of many other tires - read non-runflats - for this car like the Nitto Invos on my G37. But then of course you give up mobility if tire damage occurs. I havent even checked the price for replacing these things. I could probably purchase a set of rims for the same price of replacing all 4 run flat tires.

After. My new shoes looks very similar to the factory 21". They are 20" from Breyton.

Next up is lowering the car by changing the front springs with AC Schnitzer springs. AC's springs are not as aggressive as those of Hamman nor Hartge. AC's authorised distributor are the bmw dealer, so they will do all the installation and computer setting for me since the rears are self levelling air suspension.
Very nice
is this in HK?
The photo looks like it is in HK

no a surprise to me, that is what I said to the BMWHK sales guys that this is a wast of time and money.
