I've owned BMWs with run flats since 2006 and have never had an issue plugging an RFT. I buy a plug kit from Walmart for $10 and keep it in the trunk along with a pair of electricians pliers and...

I bought mine for the performance. I would drive my 335i, jump in my Chevy Traverse and immediately get depressed even though it was a loaded LTZ.

You probably know this but it's not a 3.5. It's called the 35i but it is the N55 3 liter engine that is in the 335, 535 etc.

The N63 in the regular 50i is no slouch, especially with a modest tune. The new X5 ran a 12.8 quarter which is only a few tenths off the M.

In the US, 2012 models are the 35i 35d and the 50i. Not sure what these 's' models are that you mention, certainly not X5 models.
