Good question. I'm asking my dealer to clarify this too. Obviously the VMax tyres are not run flat, so I'm hoping that there's a space saver spare and not a can of puncture foam.

Can some body tell me if the e60 comes with spare tire, because when I purchase mine on the invoice said spare tire.
This is a M5 Thread/Forum!

And no, the M5 has no spare tire, but the BMW mobility system

I,m glad that some body else has the same question, I think I,ll have answer at the end of next week, when my dealer send me the final confirmation(my new e60 is schecule for the first week of march-05. If you find something please let me know, if not I,ll tell you later.

Can you please be more specific? You mean a space-saver spare? What do you mean by "no full size either"?

Ya the spare tire on the 525 530 545 is a space-saver wheel and tire not a full size spare tire.

The M5 does not come with spare tire at all since the exhaust takes up all the room under the trunk.

It'll be interesting how they solve that in Australia. My understanding is that it will not pass "roadyworthy" regulations if it does not have a spare (or a can of goop). Does anyone know what the M3 CSL has?

Do any of the other 5 series have Run-Flat tyres as OEM? Maybe I'll get a full size spare and put a run flat on it

Funny that the E60 (non-M of course) that come with the runflats also have a spare. However, while not full size, it doesn't look like a donut space saver.
The spare is a option, but standard in a number of countries like here

You are crrect it is not as tiny as what you get in say a golf, but it is still much smaller than the normal wheel
