Easier to fix, easy to insure, tougher, longer lasting, better ride, less noise, better steering feel, better handling, less expensive though not quite as pretty. Beauty has its disadvantages.

BMW should replace them under warranty ...... hopefully. How very annoying. Best of luck.
Agree with everything except the pretty comment personally I much prefer the looks of the 18s: they have more shape, design, and character. The 19s just just like any old multi-spoke to me. Though, the 19s suit the F31 much better, the style and size of them. On the F30 M Sport, 18s all the way for me
