Cheap Space saver e92

Hello guys, is there a cheap way to do the spare wheel when the run flats are ditched?
A recommendation of a steel wheel which will fit would be ok?
I can buy a jack/ brace etc. off bmw.

I just bought a space saver off an E46 model for my e91. Fits on the back but not the front due to the calipers but I'm happy enough with that as previously I was carting a full size spare around.

E60 space saver will fit (if you can find any!)
I modified a Vauxhall jack to fit the sill sockets!

Birds supply a space saver with jack etc all nicely bagged so you can keep it in your boot. Not 'cheap' though...

BMW do a proper kit for around 250

Buying an E60 space saver makes sense. They a cheap small trolley jack for 25 and a wheel brace. Sorted.

I'm not sure that a 16" wheel will fit over the brake calipers?

not tried the spacesaver on the rear wheels yet brian. i am pretty sure it will fit the rear wheels because i expect smaller calipers on the rears . start playing again in spring.

17" space saver from an E46 fits front and rear of my e90 330i. I know, I've tried. Not actually had to drive on it though.
