This seems a very strange response from bmw. Ok, some people say its fine and others disagree. But what is the reasoning behind saying the "best" way to do it is rear first then front later.

Surely the best way would be all or nothing? Why dont they send the cars from the factory with different front and rear setup if thats the best way?
