May be wrong but don't think the Continental Winter Contact TS830P tyres are RFTs so you'd need to add the price of a Mobility kit etc to that price (or upgrade to BMWs Bridgestone package for 912 a set). Unless you've ordered the ED which I think comes with 16" non-RFTs?

Thanks Rob,

The car I have ordered does come with RFT's I have asked the Dealer if the Continentals are RFT's and if not have advised that I would like to upgrade to the Bridgestone Blizzak LM-32 RSC package as per the BMW Site as for an extra 40 it will be worth it.

A cursory look seems to indicate the Blizzak LM-32 RFTs are around 115 a piece so a set of four comes in around 460 (incl tax & delivery), although might be able to do a deal for four. On BMW pricing that leaves 448 to cover a set of 16" steel wheels, fitting and balancing.

Have a sneaky feeling that BMW charge extra for storage - quoted price is 30 but I'd be surprised if you couldn't negotiate that down to 'free'

RobUK, your suspicion was correct about the Continentals not being Run Flats, They had ordered a Mobility Kit for it but they hadn't explained that too me. So I have insisted that I have the Bridgestone Blizzaks instead which they are going to order for me and send the Continentals back! Was a little surprised they had ordered them as they car isn't due until the middle of december and I haven't even paid for the Winter Tyre package yet so there was no order form for them!!

Many thanks for making it aware to me otherwise I wouldn't have known.
