We bought the BMW mobility kit for our 3 series when we ditched the run flats. Plus we have road side assistance with our auto insurance as well. Knock on wood, but in 5 years no problems yet.

For me, the run flats were the first thing to go on my X5. I looked specifically for an X5 with the spare tire (and got it) but honestly if I didn't have it I'd still have dumped the RFT's.

I also got an email today from getbmwparts.com for the OEM BMW E70/71 X5 & X6 Series Emergency Wheel/Tire Set - $335. I know hauling it around is a pain, maybe needed for longer trips out of town, but it's an option to consider.
