Mein Auto: 2009 BMW X5 48i
First Time BMW X5 Owner with Questions

I just purchased a Certified Preowned 2009 BMW X5 48i and have a couple of questions that the BMW owners manual didn't address.

1) My X5 has 3rd row seating and did not see the location of the spare tire. The manual picture of the location of the spare tire doesn't match up with the vehicle. Does it not come with the vehicle? The vehicle does have run flat tires.

2) The dealer strongly suggested using 91 octane fuel yet the manual says 87 octane could be used if there are not any performance issues, such as engine knocking. Anyone running 87 octane out there?
