Tire Pressure

So this morning, the iDrive gave me a tpms alert saying my front left tire pressure was low. So I went to the gas station to check it. Apparently both front tires were in the low 20s! I put them back up to 32psi. I didn't get time to check the rear tires until the afternoon when I got back from work. But when I did... one rear tire was set at like 44psi and the other one was at like 48psi. WTF man. Seems like someone did a half ass job during re-delivery. Ill probably go and adjust them all 2 psi more than stock in a bit.

The car has been fine just thought I'd call this out ... very bizarre!

That is strange! 48psi is super high!

You don't have kids do you? I used to put air in my dad's tires for him back in the day. Pretty sure I didn't know how to check the pressure when I was younger.

haha - no..the car was re-delivered to me on August 18th after my ED. So I hadn't even checked the tire pressure prior to the alert the other day. I know they replaced my rear rims at the BMW VDC, so maybe some guy filled the back tires twice instead of filling all 4 once
