  1. Should I get one from the stealer or from ECP/GSF? The garage across the road from work say they have issues with wear sensors so like to order from BMW. Never had an issue with ECP sensors myself so thought I'd throw it up here.....
  2. Hi All Around five months ago I noticed the outside edges of the front tyres were showing a lot of wear. The pressures are good so I suspected a tracking problem. The car was taken to a local tyre dealer who I have used for 25 years to have the tracking checked. They told me the tracking was fine and then said some tyres just seem to wear like that on some cars. I carried on driving and of course came to the inevitable MOT fail in January. The tyres were replaced and my local independent garage where I get my cars serviced checked the tracking for me. Mike, the owner, said that technically the tyre dealer had been right when he said the tracking was fine - because BMW specify a 'range' of tolerance. However the tracking was not spot on. I believe the rear wheels being slightly out of track may have also contributed. The tracking has now been set precisely, and I'm hoping the condition will not recur. I'm no technical expert but it might be worth checking this, particularly if you get wear on just one edge (so not linked to under-inflation). Jim
