Interestingly, the manual for my M Coupe states that you shouldn't swap the wheels
on the axles,
but does not impose restrictions on side to side swaps, nor, technically, swapping tires (though that would be one very expensive rotation). I've never asked my dealership if they would, mainly because I can't anyway. Anyway, I mention this not to be argumentative -- I remember your posts from my earlier lurking days -- but because I find BMW's position somewhat anomalous and interesting. ~ H
