Change or fix the tire with what?

What am I going to do patch it with the cigarette lighter?

I don't see how that statement is realistic with what is sold in the BMW market.

When you get a flat tire, they tell you to drive it to the dealer to get a new one or if the dealer is closed, drive home, and bring it the next day.

That's what I have done thus far.
That is the purpose of you dont crawl under your car on the side of the road to change a tire.
