run flat tyre repair

Hi guys, Im loosing tyre pressure in of my rear tyres. It is only 6 months old and Im not really looking to spend 200 on a new tyre.
Im trying to find a tyre repair center but noone seems to be repairing runflats.
Any ideas? Do I have to splash 200 on a new tyre again?

didnt hit any pothole or so my guess is a puncture. Was braking very hard yesterday coz one women in front suddenly started braking so was sliding my rear a bit. Then I got warning on my dash.
I topped up the tyre yesterday afternoon to 2.7 bar and went to check it an hour ago and it was 1.7

Plug it yourself? Buy a kit. Dead easy to do. If it still loses pressure after that then a patch would work well with the plug. Plug kit less than 10 and the rest is your own labour.
