Has anyone built their own spare tire package for their E70? What size rims and tires were you able to fit in the rear compartment (under the trunk floor space)? I do not want to buy the ugly steel rimmed space saver spare that BMW sells. Also, what kind/brand of jack did you purchase?

Sorry but you have few options. The compartment is not really THAT wide to allow anything much different than the OEM spare. Yes, it's ugly but it will be living 99% of it's life under that cover so there really is not reason to spend $500 on different parts IMHO. However, if you DO find something that works, post it on here for others to see.
