Question bmw 530i

Ok, I know the following topics have already been covered, but need additional information.
1). How are the tires? I have been hearing that the runflats are horrible. I know that ever dealer is different, but is there an optional tire/wheel maintance/warranty offered from the dealers? Also, since there has been negative feedbac on the runflats, should I just get aftermarket wheels. If so, I am leaning towards the F1, but any other options?
2). Now the wheels, I know I have the BMW M5 wheel option, but should I go with aftermarket rims for that amount of money? Also, I was leaning towards 20-22 inch wheels, any opinions?
3). Is the SMG transmission worth the money?
4). Is the upgraded audio system worth the money?
5). I know that everybody is different, but what color is favored. I just want to know if you are satisfied with your color choice or if you had another go at it, would you choice a different color? I love the dark silver/titanium colors, but there are so many, which one should I go with?
6). What color interior is prefered?
7). Anything else I should know before I go purchase( like accesories)?
