Get that tire protection deal. When you want a new tire just run over a pot hole ;)

In all seriousness, the run flat tires are really easy to damage, but they were good about replacing them...

Now that you mention it, I do recall that the HPFP on my 335i was bad, and did get replaced. I forgot it, because from my perspective I never knew. I brought the car in for a routine maintenance...

Here's my $200 (yes, my thoughts are worth 1000 times market value).
