Mein Auto: X1 x28i; 128i; S2000
I'm planning on sticking with RFTs (my x28i M Sport should be here by Feb.). I don't know how a donut would affect the AWD system and I don't want tire smell in the cabin (since there is no trunk). We kept the 128i and donut, RFTs won't go back on that car for now.

With the softer suspension (than I'm used to) I may not find the OEM RFTs objectionable, I didn't on test drive (didn't check which tires were outfitted). The new RFTs are said to be better than the old Bridgestone RE050As that were standard on BMWs. After the OEMs wear out i plan to move to the Bridgestone S001s (not sure why these aren't the OEM). Best case scenario for me is that Michelin releases a compatible Pilot Sport PS2 ZP fitment or an even better next generation RFT is available in a few years.
