Yes, there are run flat winter tires. Pirelli, for one, makes them as does Dunlop.

AFAIK there is no "Sport" button (as there is on M3s for example with a DCT tranny).

My 2012 135i MSport does not have any Sports button. What you see is what you got..!!

I agree with this post above. The short monthly start up and around the block can do more harm than good, and you do not need jackstands. My 135i is presently sitting in my garage at home, on trickle...

I don't care for the idea of the "stop/start" feature, nor the sure to be electric steering. Those two things...

I wouldn't worry about that. Mine is a 2012 and has only 4000 kms (2500 mi) on it.

Just be sure to have it checked out mechanically if not at a BMW dealer.

You don't even have the car yet. I would say live with it a while after you get it, then decide. I wouldn't rush into anything initially.
