Has anyone actually had to use the Tischer Spare Kit for a 335?

I know there are hundreds of posts on replacing RFT's with non-RFT's and getting some type of spare tire kit, and the Tischer Kit seems to be one of the most popular.

Since it doesn't appear to be designed specifically for our cars, has anyone actually had to use it on a 335 (or know anyone that has) ? If so, what was your opinion on the kit.

Thanks for the related links and responses. I'd like to know if the spare tire fit the 335i without any problems when it was used and driven, since I thought Tischer had a disclaimer about using it on anything other than an E60/61 (whatever model that is).
