That car had the original stock tyres and I noticed the front and rear tyres, inner side had gone bald.
Out of sheer curiosity, I got an opportunity to take care of X3 for a few days, and decided to take it to the alingment centre to check the camber settings on the X3. As expected, the settings were 'OUT'..did a hour's job of setting it back and the vehicle is fine.
Incidentally, the friend's car had a mileage of only 28K, loosing out on the threads of the tyres was a shame.
So, even a brand new car, out of the showroom, needs to be checked for its camber settings. This saves a lot on tyre wear...cheers.
