I don't think you can buy the complete spare wheel and tire like I did over here in DE. But you should be able to buy the alloy wheel and then source a mini donut from TireRack or the like.

Here is the alloy wheel for the M3 listed by RealOEM.com

Here are some pics of my spare tire setup on my 135i(same alloy wheel!)...








jack kit and tools = 71106773536 - 100 euros
alloy wheel/tire spare = 36110445045 - 120 euros

I saw this same type of 17 inch alloy on the front of an E92 M3 today, being driven through suburban Melbourne, so it appears this could be an alternative...
