They are 55 in depth though. Would that rub on the M4
(where I have 275/35/19s)? Also are narrower at 255.

You can consider: staggered
Front: 245/35/19
Rear: 265/35/19

Alternative: square
255/35/19

just had a bad experience at T&C BMW. I wanted to get a plastic trim fixed on my mini since i believe it is under warranty and it is a defect. First thing the service agent asked was where did you buy your car and why didn't you buy it from us. I told them no one got back to me about the price so i got it somewhere else. After he took a look at the problem, he was like why didn't you bring the car to your dealership, they will probably fix it on the spot. I was like you guys are closer to where i live. Then he was like since you mod the car and have tinted windows, i am not sure if we can fix it for you. I was like the tint has nothing to do with this issue. He thinks i am dumb or something he was like they might need to take that apart in order to do the tint. I was like are you for real, you think i don't know how tinting work or something. Anyways he took some pictures and show them to his manager and of course he did not approve it. Kept saying that i didn't buy it from them it is hard for them to justify the fix. we are independent of each other, bmw will ask us why we need to fix it for the customer. By that time i had enough, i just told him i will go to my own dealership to get it fix. what a waste of time. I thought for warranty you can fix it at any dealership. i have a pic below with my issue.

you can certainly report this to Mini Canada. Even though they will not do anything for you, at least you can file your complaint ... to let off some steam.

since you live close to TC Mini/BMW. Make it a habit of stop by and grab some free juice, water and pop from their customer lounge. Nobody cares if they see you grabbing the drinks.

This might put a dent in Pfaff's pocket book. Let's do a BMW meetup where we just grab free refreshments from TCBMW

good to hear. Endras servicing has always been more decent in treating their customers.

doesn't even surprise me, when i tried to buy a car at TCBMW once they were not very smart. I said I wanted the car by the new year, salesmen asked if I meant the lunar new year. Mind you I spoke english the entire time.... Also the date on the contract of sale is always the western calender anyway and not lunar new year. I just hung up the phone and took my business elsewhere.

^ ... that's because Markham has lots of Chinese, esp. from Mainland who brings suitcases of cash and ready to buy at MSRP. Smiling Face With Open Mouth And Smiling Eyes
