Ok, so was a small nail hidden in the base of the tire. Which is fine... problem now is, first of all, not one tyre place has heard of my tyre type and size in RF, not Ian Diffens, Not Beaurepairs and not Bridgestone. Bridgestone even called the state sales manager for Continental and they informed him and me (as I was there) that there are none of those tyres in Australia and from what he can see none are on order. They also advised me that Conti said they can not be repaired, whereas BMW has said they can and BMW tyre company they use in Perth said they can be.
I am waiting for confirmation.. but really... I have emailed the service manager of Auto Classic asking him what the go is.
Does anyone else have the optioned 18" on Sportline.

Tyre is Continental Contact Sport5 RFT 225/45/18R/91Y Run Flat. I have had a Non Runflat of the same type and tread put on for now, until I work out what the go is. If it they are 100% non repairable and I cant get the Tyre in Australia, then what is the point of having RFT on the car at all.

Has anyone ditched RFT all together?
