So.... in a few days, someone will send a single wheel from Kiel to wherever the dealership is from which the mobile service sourced the wheel? :D
Düsseldorf, and yes.
It's labeled F20-21-22-23, so an intentional 1/2er loaner wheel it seems.

Fucking hell.. So I guess only if you buy the tires with the star yourself or with rims they're covered, but not when they come with the car? Grrrreat..

Yeah, if your four new starred tyres came with a car attached to them then you're SOL... Or, in my case, you hand the bill to your company 😅

260ish€ of not-my-money later, new rubber is in place :) now I have 1/4 tyre warranty...

Meanwhile, I had a go at going fast topless... 2xy kph sure do come quickly :burnrubber:

Another meanwhile, a bit I didn't post yet because the responsible party refused responsibility until earlier today: It came with a broken handbrake and ruined rear brake disks. BMW was like "user error, lulz"... delivery dealer finally accepted to cough up 👏

I've sort-of-properly fitted the dashcam cables :woot:

3556282


3556279

Plenty of room for the cable there, by now it's been fixed in place with a bit of tape.

3556280

I might eventually tie the bottom of the coil up as well.



This is probably near the bottom of what the car is capable of on level ground with the top down without a massive tailwind or drafting like a madman:

Mostly constant 90kph. Going faster you're looking at 2x :mrgreen:

...and going very fast / being an idiot / "training" you're looking at 4x that :driving:
Two months further along, this happened: Nothing broke :banana:

October brought out the winter boots:

Not sure I believe this claim of ecopro adding 15% more range :think: it is quite clever though. For example, when it tells you to take your foot off the gas because there's a town a couple corners down the road and you do it, it will go into neutral... expected. However, if you wait for a while and then take your foot off the gas, it will stay in top gear, cut fuel to the engine entirely, and go into charging. If you wait even longer, it will slightly downshift too to somewhat match the speedlimit+10ish :clap:

Quote scary too - it will tell you to slow down for sharp corners, but only if you're driving like a madman... allegedly :shifty:


November brought this:

Push ALL the buttons!

Naturally, I managed to unplug the dashcam a few days prior and didn't notice 🤦‍♂️

The rear winters now look... appropriate :grin:

The sprinklers left an ugly layer of grime on the car, so free wash it is 🤩 shiny car is shiny again.

Plot twist, the wheel just made it back to Düsseldorf last week. Apparently BMW Kiel failed to mail it :shakefist: I should have just kept it and sold myself, instead of complaining to get my 100€ deposit back.
