Bimmer bummer!!!!!!! I've had my 2011 328i for only 3,000 miles (purchased with 13,000 on it) and am already buying a new tire for it!!! I picked up a huge screw (metal, not a large woman) the other day and am getting the opportunity to spend $230 + tax for a new tire. It looks like, with just a little bit of effort, that huge well in the trunk could have been modified to hold a compact spare. What are some options on these tires???
I've wanted a BMW all my driving life, and finally have one. But - out of pocket expenses like this, and so soon, are not to encouraging. Does anyone make a compact spare for these cars? I absolutely love everything about this car, but many more out of pocket expenses like this may drive me on to something else.
