6 Series
The BMW 6 Series builds on BMW's sporty heritage with aggressive lines and an incredible motor to back the design up.

"Finally" got a flat tire!

So i Finally got a flat tire yesterday, running Michelin PSS non run flats.... thank goodness I know who sells spare tires, was up and running in 10 mins...
Nail was in sidewall, so the $300 pinch is still not too much fun

That sucks. It seems you still have a lot of meat left on the tire too. Glad to see the spare came in handy.

I might think about actually putting the space saver in the boot (trunk) instead of leaving it in the garage!
