I'm still curious how they can put conti's on some cars and PS2's on others. The two tires really aren't even comparable. At least IMO.

Mine has PS2s. Warning message for low tire pressure came on yesterday saying my "Run Flat" tires should not exceed 50 mph. Are the M3s one of the few BMWs without Run Flats? You would think they could program the IDrive to be M3 specific.
