Compact spare for 328i

My 2008 328i just failed VA inspection for tire wear. I have RFT and want to go to non-RFT. Dealer told me they don't sell compact spare but said to look for E46 at salvage yard. I called a half dozen and have come up empty. Bimmerzone says use E90 for my model. Their price for donut kit is $330! Can anyone confirm should I look for E46 or E90? Any thoughts on where to find a used on at fair price?

Or you could forget about carrying around an extra wheel and just purchase a flat tire kit.

Runflats

I too have a 2008 328xi with runflats. The tires were awful and extremely hard riding. But, a recently put on the new 3rd generation runflats called Bridgestone Potenza RE960AS Pole Position RFT (Ultra High Performance All-Season). They are perfect, ride like a non-runflat with all the benefits of a runflat. They are soft and smooth and quiet. Try em. You will love them.

Buy some fix a flat and get AAA, problem solved and weight saved! That was my path.
