I noticed that you listed 1100 for 2007 and 2010. With oil changes being between 100 - 120, that means you spent around 1080 on tires.... that seems crazy high to me. What kind of tires did you get?

this sounds like a lot less maintenance money than most have been discussing and also more reasonable to own, If you dont mind me asking, whats your mileage on your E46?
