After tischer informed me that the kit was no longer available, i put in an order w/ tischer for all the components individually, ie the wheel, jack, tire, etc. The part numbers were taken from orient's original posting w/ the only exception being that the tire part number had been changed, the new part number for the tire is in Tofu Turkey's post earlier in this thread. All the part numbers were found on tischer's site.

Cost was a little more than the kit as a single order but under $300.


Got all parts about 2 weeks ago, mounted the tire on the rim for $16. Obviously you can just order the rim and tire as tofu suggests. Thanks again to orient !! - and tofu for the update on the tire part number.


From Tofu Turkey:
"In case any one is looking to buy just the wheel + tire, the S/N for the latter has changed. It's now 36110306541, the wheel's S/N is the same, 36116758778."

The Tischer spare kit is $275 +$50 shipping.
I'll eventually go with non run flats and will buy this spare kit and cargo net tiedown.
What concerns me a bit is
"Using this wheel/tire set on any other vehicle than an E60/61 5 Series is at your own risk."

Will this unit work on the E90's.

What BMW Customer Service has to say now . . .

Both Tischer and my dealer said neither of the part numbers listed in my previous post were orderable by US dealers. Although I was hopeful I can't say that this was a surprise. So I once again called my contact at BMW Customer Service. He insisted the parts were available and the dealers just weren't following the proper ordering procedure. Several weeks and many conversation later the BMW Customer Service rep finally told me that his "parts specialist" discovered these parts. indeed, are not available to US dealers.

I don't know what disappoints me more, the fact that it took a BMW representative months to discover the unavailability of a part; or the "we don't care" attitude of BMW toward those customers that don't feel comfortable driving their cars without a spare. If your travels take you more than a few hours away from a major metropolitan area, you are looking at a day or two wait for a replacement tire. This is simply not acceptable. I purchased two of their cars in the last 9 months. I'll look elsewhere for my next cars.

My hat is off to Tischer for pulling together this "kit" for us.

Yup, we've re-assembled this 'kit' since BMW no longer offers it complete. It's still on special here, and the only difference is the tire will not come mounted on the rim. We also run the cargo nets, tire totes and other goodies on special here!

Thanks bimmerfest'ers!!!

That's my photo of the setup in my E92. Just got the same this week from Jason and Evan at Tischer for my brother's new E90.

I bought a black lined vinyl tire cover on Ebay.
Goes great with the black cargo net.

Olegoz (& others) : Here is the spare in my e93. With the hardtop in the trunk you have about 7inch of vertical room above the tire at the back of the trunk, and 2in at the front of the trunk. Note that the pictures make more sense when clicking thru in reverse order

No matter how you slice it, it takes a serious toll of available room.

My plan was to carry a winter wheel all the time. Just 2.5" thicker or so than the real spare.

But when going on vacation, I needed all the cubic inches so the wheel was left behind.

Here a suggestion to BMW to improve their very impractical car.

I ordered my spare tire package from Tischer last week, and it arrived yesterday.

I wasn't aware that the "oddiments tray" that holds all the ancillary items fits within the wheel, making a nice tight package. Very nice.

The setup included everything, including the valve for when the tire is mounted (another nice touch). I sent my 20-year-old daughter down to the local tire store to get the wheel set up. Mounting and balancing came to $17 (she walked it down from $25 with some eye-batting and smiling).
