Need advice on 2PE vs 2PP

I'm going to be replacing the stock wheels on my 335i M Sport as soon as I get it, but still need to decide which to order..... 2PE or 2PP? Which set might have the best resale value?

Thanks for your thoughts.

I guess no one has a strong feeling one way or the other on this subject.

Taking a slightly different tack, would either or both 2PE and 2PP fit on a 2002 E46? Just thinking maybe I could swap in the stock F30 set onto my current E46 to freshen it up prior to selling it once I get my new F30.

Thanks.

If you get the non staggered all seasons you also get a lowered top speed limit set by the factory.

Thanks claykin. This would be the case regardless of whether the set is staggered or not, correct? ZAS cannot be ordered with 840 (increased top speed limiter) according to the order guide.

How about all seasons vs. summers? Any thoughts on which set might have a better resale value?

Thanks!

The difference between 2PE and 2PP is just the staggered/tyre setup, correct?

I vote you do this, because it's my plan (albeit with the staggered wheels)

2PE, run the tyre tread down through normal use.
Buy aftermarket rims (give the market time to come out with fitments for the F30)
Put winters on the stockers.

Thanks jsedlak for your sage advice. You probably get more snow up there in NJ than we get here in the DC area on average. I'm not sure I'm interested in running winters, esp since my wife stated that it was against her wishes to have to store a spare set in our small garage.

Yes, 2PE is staggered, 2PP is non-staggered. I was actually planning on replacing the stock set as soon as the car arrives (due probably around the beginning of the year). Maybe because of the timing of that arrival, I should plan on ordering ZAS and run those through winter, then put the replacement set on (which will be summers). I guess losing the increased top speed limiter by going with ZAS is not that big a deal...I'll probably never even get close to hitting the lower limit anyway.

Thanks.

2PE is staggered? Whoops! I confused the two.

As an option by itself (I didn't realize you could add 2PE to just any F30), it doesn't make sense to get it if it only adds a higher top speed limiter (this can be coded separately) unless your replacement wheels will use the same tyres as the stock rims.

jsedlak, you are correct, you cannot add 2PE to just any F30, which, if I understand the order guide correctly, is only available on the M Sport (which is what I'm getting ).

Thanks.
