Mobility kit for X-mas
 
The wife dropped the mobility kit on me. After I put all the pieces in their proper holes in the trunk, I noticed that the book of books (owners manuals) fits very nicely inside the mobility kit's bag (BMW zipper case) and the case fits in the indentation on the right side of the trunk. Plus it has a rubber bottom so it will be less likely to jump out on a hard right turn. :thumbup:

Thank honey!

That is great!

That is where I keep my manual book, plus it is stuffed with all the service receipts and the other BMW books that came with the car. It always stays firmly planted in that recess and I love to drive with both levels of traction control disabled. The partial and the full, so I am sliding through some intersections with abandon. Yet it never moves? :dunno:

Nice present to get. I was just looking at my tyres today, they are definitely due a change soon. So the big decision now comes on whether to ditch the runflats or not.
I was thinking of getting the mobility kit or the space saver set up if I do. An e60 one came up for same for 150 on another local forum, it was unused. The mobility kit has the advantage of not taking up as much room. I already have Michelin air compressor & a tyre plug set but the OEM kit is tempting given what you have said about the fitment in the service manual cubby hole.
I'm looking at getting a premium brand tyre but I want to have the same brand/pattern on all four wheels. I think the choice is limited enough though.

Many on this site have gone non-RF and will never look back. Myself included. Completely different ride. I went with Hankook v-12's.

+1 on the NRFs. Also went with Hankook V12 but I might not choose them again. Very soft rubber and they feel every bump. A friend with them on an M6 says the same thing.

Not a terrible choice but makes you wonder about the feel with other tires. Frankly, they are a great deal. That said it is a whole new car with NRFs.

I have the donut spare kit but I only put it in when I'm on a long trip, not around town.

+2 on NRF tires for better ride. I run michellin super sports and keep the donut spare in the trunk most of the time. Haven't had to use it though (knock on wood). Don't know if it was bad luck or what, but I picked up screws/nails twice in the first four months when I was running the stock RFT's - switched out to the NRF michellins and haven't picked up a screw or nail or had any other flat since then (almost two years now).

I replaced my Run Flats, with the Continental Extreme Contact DWS. They have very good pricing, & ride is a lot smoother! The price is very competitive compared other brands! Quite a few members here love their tires. I actually get less flats now?

Good Luck
