When I asked if the dealership had any 5 series cars in stock with the spare kits to look at, my sales guy went through the in stock inventory and incoming cars list and the answer was no. They don't order them for inventory. So I decided not to get the kit. I think if I had to do it again, I would order the kit (for only $150) and as noted above remove it when I want more trunk space or was going on a long trip. Helps to be lucky. Just finished a 3,500 road trip and fortunately did not have any tire problems. --Bob.
Can your dealer get me that deal? I want everything including the spare tire carrier and storage parts that are aft of the spare tire.

The cheaper kits only come with the spare tire and the jack and wrench that fit in a styrofoam holder and they expect you to use ghetto looking tie downs to hold it down.
