I'll chime in with my 2 cents:
On my E93 I took off the RFTs immediately after delivery and installed a set of Yokohama ADVAN S4s in the OEM sizes on 18" CSL wheels. Ride was markedly improved, handling did not suffer and I had no problem for the 2.5 years that I owned the car. Sold the RFTs for almost enough money to buy the non-runflat tires.
Did the same thing on my E89 Z4 except I went with the new Yokohama ENVigor UHP AS tires. So far so good but only have 3000 miles on the tires in 6 months of ownership.
Would I do it again? YES. I do not like the ride, feel or cost of the RFTs. I know they are supposed to be getting better but they still weigh more, ride worse, cost more, etc.
OK, maybe this is more like 5 cents.
