don't let the dealerships sucker you into putting nitrogen into you tires saying it will hold pressure better. It does, but by a margin, and for most of us that are daily drivers, really not worth it. Just maintain proper tire pressure with regular air and you'll be fine.

just my .02 cents.
Your exactly right but my bmw is my third driver so it just sits in the garage most of the time so it was kinda worth it for me.
