: Here's the question of the day?

: Is the sport's package worth the negative impact the 17inch wheels have on ride comfort?

I have a 328Ci without the Sports tires (Sport Suspension is standard on Ci). The Michelin MXV are very quiet on the highway, but as a tire they are not impressive. I have driven a 328i with the sport package, and did not find it overly harsh. Bottom line, I will buy a set of 17" wheels and tires in the spring. Until then miserable snow tires will be a fact of life for a few months.

00 328Ci
