Move downtown and you won't have to deal with driving in snow.

Wayne, on a separate note, what year is your X5 and does it's back seats flip up and move forward?

I'm thinking about replacing our 5 seater SUV for a 7. Test drove the X5 among others recently and it was the only one I've seen so far that has the back seat flip up as opposed to folding forward and then moving up.

I have an '09, middle seats flip up and forward to access the rear seats, but I wouldn't put an adult in the back seats. Good for kids up to 10 years I'd say.

To be honest it's not that exciting. All you do is squirt a little and off it goes... Car is too quiet!

Off the line it's not the most exciting either. Need to do brake boost in 2nd gear to get a good launch without burning rubber lol. Also BMW has throttled off the line starts, car feels slow off the line and then it finally goes. Could explain why BMW rates it at 6.0 from 60 and others doing brake boost in 2nd are getting mid 5's. JBD puts it right around 4.8-5.0 to 60

I am going again next in a week and a half from now...so I should be able to do it.

Do the rims come with tires as well, need to know how big.

Yeah, it's a fun car for sure. Wayne let me redline the shit out of it (Said it just passed the break-in period, lol!!) Very go-kart like.

I'm gonna be needing summers in April.

it totally depends on what kind of deal you are getting ...what "perks" and/or other things you can combine in the trip.

a basic..i need tires nigra and thats it...you wont be saving much if any after its all added up.

Just for tires, no. If you combine it with other things that you buy, then yes.

Do your homework as there could be a deal to find.

but if its down to $100-200 between the two sets(example)...the local one is here, will include install/balance and you have a local place to deal with if something goes wrong with the tire.

where going to the states = driving there(time+ gas/$20-40 in gas alone) , paying somewhere to install/balance($60-$100 depending), more pita(or no place at all) to deal with possible warranty issues etc. + possible paying taxes if you dont install them stateside.


A lot of people rarely look at the whole cost of it and just see x tire is cheaper by y dollars and think its better....then you start adding it all up. Not such a great deal.
And many good deals locally these days.

Ordered 2 sets, 17" and 18" through TireRack instead of SimplyTire, saving about $700, after paying taxes at the border. Then $20 to install a set of wheels so savings down to $640. Gas - $50 (but can recover the bulk of this if you start driving with a half tank to States and fill it up in States). Then you pick up packages from the mailbox, buy groceries at Walmart and head back.
