If you ever need to use the Conti kit's tire sealant, be prepared to buy both a new TPM and a tire (plus the tire people will curse you!). Plus, if it is a catastrophic blowout, you'll be stranded (course, you might be if it was that bad on a RFT as well). It's a tough call, either way. I don't fault BMW from going to RFT. They're not the only one, at least on several models. But, I'm not sure the tires have caught up to people's expectations. As it stands, at least for me, they don't bother me enough to consider switching. I'd prefer to be able to keep going, and you have a good chance of doing that with the RFTs.
