That's where the spare comes in. It also helps you to get to your destination and not be forced to abandon your trip.

Please keep us informed if any other BMW or other brand spares would fit E90. I assume that '06 330xi and new 335i's would require the same spare, right?
the 330i is a *little* easier, the front brakes are a little smaller than the ones on the 335i. but everything else would be the same
