Runflat tires
By Rob Nesbitt on


2008 BMW 3 Series 328i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


As you can see above, I like the car. That said, I feel the dealers take advantage of the customer. This is a lease, and I need their approved service. They charged by $309 for a wheel alignment which could have been sold with poor alignment. Who's to know. Also, I was charged $483.00 for a tire replacement (simple nail). This is outrageous. According to the dealer, run-flats cannot be repaired. Again, I was stuck with the dealer recommendation. Run-flats are a poor excuse for "saving" the weight of a spare and "peace of mind" to be able to go 50 miles at 50mph (try that on an L.A. freeway). One must use secondary roads if one does not want to get rear- ended.

Best Features

Handling, speed and mileage (30 on the highway).

Worst Features

Dump the run-flats. $2,500.00 for a set of new tires is outrageous. $309 for an alignment is outrageous. All service outside of "free" service is "outrageous".
