There's nothing in the construction of a run flat that precludes it from being plugged the same as a conventional tire. The difference is that, with a conventional tire, it goes flat, you stop, put...

Sirius renewal

My free year is up in a couple of weeks. What's the best price you guys got on a renewal? I like the all inclusive pkg as I use the Sirius iPhone app a lot.

Real world 0-60 times

Wondering if any of you guys have done any real world 0-60 tests for either the 28i or 35i. And, how did you get your best times and what did you use to record your times?

Sounds like I really need to drive the 35i. I've never driven a BMW with that engine. If I like it, I think I'll def order a 2015 before they change the platform.
