BMW mobility kit
For major tyre damage then I guess you need to get the M3 flatbeded to a nearby tyre shop and prey it is within business hours!

May be worth in investing the time & money to get a pony wheel. This makes even more sence in case of long commuting or in case of a long road trip. ANother member did the dirty job in putting this together so if you search you can find more info on that thread.

Pages 206-208 of the manual. If you don't have a copy, you can download one from this site.

My CA told me they were runflats when I was picking up the car, I didn't believe him and didn't want to argue, I just wanted to get the car and drive. Definitely not runflats.
