Spare tire~~Yes or no ?

Should I take out the spare tire? I notice that the trunk space is much larger after spare tire disappears. Moreover, the car is lighter.

I have a 135i w/ runflats and no spare and I only wish it had non-runflats w/ some kind of spare. Our MiniS came with runflats and the first suspension upgrade was to get ride of them. The car handled so much better with non-runflats. With runflats, you get a lot more road transference throughout the car. Plus your tire choices are limited and they cost a lot more.

If weight is the issue then just pick up a fix-o-flat kit but stay away from runcraps.

I have everything out of my trunk. Tire and both black foam things that hold the jack and shit. Now it actually looks like I have a trunk

It's a tough call. The scissors jack that comes with cars is almost useless when you actually need it...which means a run home for a jack or calling a service anyway. I'm still carrying mine but it's tempting to pull it.
