Wife wants a 335IS convertible now, so we will be letting go of this car in the next few weeks after we get the new car ordered.
3 words: Ditch the Runflats! Your issues have been mirrored by many board members especially those with the F10 sedan. Although when I did have my runflats I only lost air once in the right front tire. It was replaced within a day under my tire warranty. Others I hear continue to have problems with the GoodYear Runflats. Bubbles due to impacts from potholes, etc seem to be a common issue.

I'm not knocking your decision to go with the 335isc (nice car), but it too has runflats and you may possibly encounter the same issues.

Just my two cents
