Which is great unless you're on a holiday weekend trip and get a flat after the dealer's closed. Kinda f's up the weekend trip.

This is why I think I'll carry a small compressor and temporary plug kit for out of town trips. I figure if I can keep the tire inflated and off the sidewall I give myself more time and options.

Anyone have experience using a temporary plug (mushroom or string) and the BMW tire/wheel warranty?
