^tire shops tell you to put the new ones on the rear, as most people can't deal with oversteer. Personally I'd put the newer ones on the front, but I wouldn't recommend that to someone I didn't know.

I believe BMW recommends against rotating, but I'm not sure of the motive (free maintenance isn't really free).

Regardless, time/money is better spent on an alignment than rotating tires if you're concerned with maximizing tire life.
