Heat issue on new 2015

I am hoping that BMW will fix the right side heat issue, the "Cook Foot Syndrome " on the new 2015's. I will place an order in the 4th quarter.

TouraTech bushing

Emoto,

I am wondering if it is all possible to get the plastic part(s) from TT and use that as well in AltRider install. It would be best of both worlds. What do you think?

I've heard alarm being pain in the rear. Now if BMW had come with keyless ignition, then I think it wouldn't be a bad idea. Not sure why they didn't make it keyless already. What's the holdup?
