Any rumors that run flats have gotten better are just that. I have a late model loaner 328i (probably a 2010 or 2011) and while the ride is fairly compliant, get that thing up to highway speeds and all you can hear is the tires roaring (they are Conti RFT's that are standard on a stripped 328i, is my guess).

Of course it's possible the F30 will somehow improve how RFT's behave on the new models, and these Conti's may be some of the worst of the bunch.
