I became very cautious about things I read written by kindergarteners.

In europe we have non-leaking BMW oil. So leaking is never a major issue.

I switched out my 19" a couple of weeks ago to stock 16" with dedicated winter tires...and realized then just how much of weight difference there really is...holly crap! I almost gave myself a hernia!
I've also noticed increased wear on my brakes, replaced my rotors last week, but then I just think the car looks so much better with the 19's...
