Sounds pretty annoying. Other than that, you enjoying the car? I'll take delivery of my 550 x-drive M sport in a little over a month. I too am dreading potential catastrophic events like yours. By the way, what is your plan for winter tires?

It's a minor repair

Most BMW dealers in the UK offer smart repairs for wheels and minor scrapes. Alternatively there are many mobile services also available where they come to you and repair in the back of a van.
