  6. Hi Dan I take it there is oil in the Diff ? When you rotate the prop is there play or movement in the Rubber Doughnuts that connect each end they are a known cause of issues as they crack with age and use/abuse 🤣 Plus they are considerably cheaper than a diff. With the drive shafts check each end for loose bolts Dave

  7. Morning Lance Welcome to the Forum A diagnostic scan would help pinpoint where the problem is it could be the door switch or an issue with the FCM. Without testing and checking you can spend a lot of cash changing stuff unnecessarily. I would start with the simple things pop out the switch clean the connectors and pins with a good contact cleaner (not WD40) see if that improves things test the switch operation with a tester/multi meter. Pop the back off the mirrors and check/clean connections. Don't forget the earth connections Hope this helps Dave

  9. For what it's worth (I'm a newbie to BMW) the two mates I know with beemers have both, independently, mentioned Pilot Sport4 S. One has a 70 plate Z4 Roadster, the other has (I think ) a M4.

  10. If changing from run flats, the suspension should be adjusted too. You should also let your insurance company know, as it would be classified as a modification.

  11. Morning Roy What are you trying to achieve?? Better Ride ? More Grip ? Quieter Ride ? Runflats are well known for delivering a harsh ride, particularly towards the end of their useful life, as well as more road noise. So if you are keeping the same wheels buy the same size tyres but non run flat, just don't buy cheap. Tyre footprint is about the size of a saucer, and that's all there is to accelerate, stop and steer your car. I always stay with recognised brands I am on Yoko's at the moment 275 x 40 x 20 Front 315 x 35 x 20 Rear. My brother inlaw has 535d touring and runs 245 x 40 x 19 Front 275 x 35 x 19 Rear Bridgestone non runflats. If changing wheels to try and improve ride quality by fitting tyres with a taller side wall Brake size will dictate what will fit (18" I believe) so something like 245 x 45 x 18 may give a more forgiving ride Dave
