no they are not runflats- Car includes M Mobilty Kit which allows you to repair minor punctures to allow you to get the car home or to the dealer

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.

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.
