Great ride, but don't hit a pot hole!

Love driving the car (335 XI) on smooth surfaces. Previous car a 2002 525. When I test drove this car I was blown away. I guess I did not hit a pot hole for a couple months. The first one scared the hell out of me. Live in NJ and pot holes are a way of life. Very glad I got the tire and wheel insurance. Had to replace 5 tires in the first 35000 miles. Love the car, hate the tires. Would not get runflats again, even though I love the car. On 525 had to change a tire 2 x in 100000 miles. Being a male not a big deal. My fault but when I bought the car I did not even realize they were run flats. I had two friends who bought similar models and they were surprised also that there was no spare.
Performance, ride, decent in the snow (better than the 525)
No more run flats. Do not like the idea that the computer tells you when to do maintenance. Had oil change at 33000 miles. Now at 47000 and computer is saying next service is at 56000 in Feb 2011. Yeah right.
