My wife was driving to work on Wednesday when her right rear blew out at over 90 mph on the autobahn. The way she described what happened it seems the traction control kicked in and dropped her down below 50mph and maintained controllability. She got it towed to BMW and they slapped a new tire on and sent her on her way (not for free by any means)
I am truly happy she was driving a smart car like the BMW that puts so much technology in the cars. I believe that it would have been different if it were any other rear wheel drive car.
This also makes me want to put runflats on her car now.

Those of you that have second thoughts about buying a BMW, buy one, they will keep you safe.
