I always buy the rim and tire protection package with BMW (two 3-series and the M3)

I have at least one replacement with the two 3-series.
And two replacement with the M3 - one summer and one winter tire.

Some might say that its not worth it...but it depends on your luck.
A puncture tire is never a fun thing.

But since i live in a new developing area in markham and there are constant construction in highway can figure out the odd of getting a nail or something to your tire.

The other protection definitely sound like a scram...i wouldn't have pick it up.
But if you don't really want to take care of your parked in a crowded mall, eat in your car etc...then i guess you might want it.

this happened January 2011, yes i have since sold the car after replacing the rim, believe it or not the rft was completely unharmed, i drove the car for the whole year til i found my m3 and never looked back. I called information on the night of the incident and they claimed that because no one else had complained about the pot whole no action can b taken, i took photos as you can tell and sent them in to the bridge and tunnel authority complaining asking for compensation and they responded the same as 411, because nobody else supposedly complained about that particular pot hole they cant do anything about it. that's new york for you, finding ways to screw its citizens out of money.
