But other question, I have run flats, but I still have a spare on the trunk... is this makes sense??

It seems BMW doesnt taking care about costs... strut, spare on run flats.... ?
With the hassle a few of us went through in trying to get a spare in the open market here in the states after purchase I can only say "thank your lucky stars" you got one. However, I think the reality is that BMW realizes that not all buyers will keep buying run flats as replacement tires (due to cost or availability) so they probably simply equip export vehicles with the spare as a default position.
