    Hi all, has anyone with an E93 ditched run flats? If so what provision have you put in place in the event of a puncture?

    Don’t think you’ll find anyone at all on this forum who runs runflats on at E93 M3

    If you want to use non runflats on a standard E93, you can use the compressor and goo from an M3

    I used to have a 330d E93 with 19” alloys and the ride was too harsh, the E93 M3 has a repair kit which is quite small, and is a much better ride than the 330d. I did read it transforms the car, and at the end of the day if you get a flat which is bigger than a nail hole say, you would need emergency assistance anyway.

    Run flats are a stupid idea, as the tyre is trashed if you drive it flat, get rid you wont regret it

    I have never had an issue with runflats in the last 10 years but hated them on the e93. Got rid of them even though I still had 4/5mm left

    Changed to Eagle F1s

    Provisions? none.

    Runflats might be a “bad idea” but you may change your tune if you picked up a large puncture on the outside Lane of the M25, they may well save your life

    Something to consider but don't forget that pnuematic tyres have been around for years before runflats. I'd rather not have runflats and have a comfortable ride.

    having had this happen to me in my daily at 11pm on a wet and windy night I can concur run flats are not so bad.

    even managed to drive another 40 miles home on it :muttley:

    not sure why people hate runfalts. Had them on my e92 and couldn't feel any difference on the roads and on the track felt much better due to stiff side walls.

    I run them on my daily 635d and tbh I don't find them too bad. Like others have said, i'd rather have them in the event of a puncture on the motorway!

    Ditching the run flats made a big difference imo, I moved from runflats to vredestein tyres bit more comfortable and less noise. And put a can of goo near the tool kit.
