No 18 wheels with ZTR on convertible

Tried a search but haven't seen this discussed elsewhere...

Im just about to pull the trigger on a 435i convertible. Unfortunately, there appears to be a mistake in the ordering guide: Ive just learned that you cant have ZTR (track package) with 18 wheels on the convertible. You have to go to 19, which Id prefer to avoid due to ride comfort.

I only really care about Adaptive M suspension, but theres no way to get that without ZTR or M-sport package. I dont want the latter.

Has anyone else run into this? What did you end up doing? Would you bite the bullet and take the 19 wheels or drop ZTR (and M adaptive suspension)?

Any creative solution Im missing that I should consider?

Unless someone has actually successfully ordered 18" wheels with ZTR on the convertible, the ordering guide appears to be wrong as a) the BMW demo site doesn't allow 18" wheels, b) My CA (Jon) checked with his contacts at BMW.

What I can't understand is why 18" wheels wouldn't be allowed, but 19" wheels would be. The response from BMW said it had to do with fitting in a tire repair kit on non RFTs, but the 19" wheels are also non RFTs.

I would have your CA check with BMW AG. There was a problem with my order that turned out to be a glitch in the order system. A tire repair kit such as a Conti Comfort Kit is about 4"x6"x9". Even the vert has that much room. Keep after them. Hope you get the 18s.

Have you driven the car with 19" wheels?

I did, and like the 18's ride better. Maybe that's why M cars come with 18's......
