Hey guys a wee update of the valve cap issue. I ended up taking it to a local tyre place and was gonna get the valve replaced £20 but the guy noticed that i was pretty close to the legal tread limit anyways and if i wanted to change the tyre £70 for normal or £170 for runflat you can guess which one i went for :rofl: funny enough the tyre with the stuck valve cap was the only runflat on the car.... :|

You really don’t want to mix tyres on the same axel 😳 that is bad news. Front to rear “ can” be acceptable and used to tune the balance of a car but the best thing for general use is a “ set of four”

Welcome and have fun with your new car. Strange for a country that only has two seasons cold rain and warm rain how many Z4s are up here! :D

If you guys go around in shorts and t shirts in winter then it’s a pierce of p£€ss to wander around in a heated car with the top down.. :thumbsup:
