Just saw the 2016 "build it" site for the 7 Series.It lists a space saver spare as an option for something like $150.Don't know if it would be suitable for an F30.

I don't think they rated reliability.That's usually due to lack of data and/or because it's a new model.But they gave the car a very high score for all the other things they test.

Never had that problem but it *does* look like tree sap or something like that.It seems clear that a fluid of some sort has dripped on it.Hard to imagine that it's rust or anything like that.
