I just rotated my 03 530i tires(24K miles)...brought the front tires to back & back to the front. And I noticed that the rear tires were equally worn out (but only on the portion of the tires where they face the car & not outside). I put 2 & 2 together & think that the rear tires are little slanted for better handling of the BMW's, hence the unequal wear/tear of the tires....am I right or do i need allignment?

When I listen to CD's, the panel shows "TR 01"...or tr 02, 03, 04, ....
How can I get it to show the time of the track it's playing? For instance, if I'm listening
to the track for 1min 15 secs, let it show 1:15, 1:16, 1:17 .....?

--any suggestions?

--Rob

BMW does usually not recommend rotating tires as the front and rear suspension are cambered differently so that causes the tires tend to wear differently.

Yea...it sucks I chew up a set of rears after 10,000 miles. Just the inner 2 inches wear out.
