    Run Flats --again !

    Thanks Gaz that's clearer in one post than I've read in numerous Sounds like a compressor is a minimum and sealant if stuck/leak large BMW have the kit for 264, there's also a Slime kit incl compressor for 172, read that Slime doesn't kill the tyre and can be washed out, so as long as not damaged will live another day 😀 Also read that if totally flat need to jack car up for compressor to fill tyre with air, hoping sensor will warn long before that Suppose i'm doing a belt and braces but a flat in the middle of the night, miles from anywhere sounds like my domain 🙄 Thanks John

    Run Flats --again !

    Hi, looks like a frequent point of discussion, and probably asking what has been answered already so apologies in advance Will finally get to run the 435i on a decent run up north in a couple of weeks and looking at repair shops for run flats ( just in case ) unsurprisingly they arent open on a Sunday My understanding for a minor flat there's a kit ( compressor and tyre fil type product, I dont have one ) to repair until at tyre shop back in AKL However some comments advise the tyre fil kills the tyre, have i misunderstood?, a weekend away that includes get stuck til tyre shop opens on Monday wont go down well with me or more importantly my passenger I mostly dont like the run flat ride but then maybe its just the BMW ride vs my usual cushy but by comparison slow boat Mazda An easy answer for all those run flat drivers out there Thanks John

    Yes that's the man/dealer whoever he is ? cant be too many people with that name or is it like John 😀 Removed dealer indication as wasn't sure if commercial info/advert was OK, secret is out , Regardless of the happy purchase, he's the best guy we came across and while searching and we met many

    Hi, New to BMWs, got to time of life when a weekend coupe seemed appropriate Drawn to M6 V10 then Series 6 640/650 ,in both instances couldn't afford the newer vehicles, liked all the exteriors of the older models ,but I like my tech so had to be newer Trademe searches for BMW coupe 3 litre plus led me to this, sort of accidental purchase, was originally still over budget I've used the dealer pictures as its never looked so good, It's the luxury model so not as popular as sport versions but for our purposes this is ideal Will have a few questions but will put them in appropriate folder/headings Cheers John
