Lug wrench included with 2012 BMW 535i?

Hello All,

I understand the F10 5er comes with run-flat tires thus not needing a spare tire in the trunk.
Does the car come with a lug wrench in case I need to tighten the lug bolt myself? I can't find it, but I just want to make sure before buying one.

Thanks.

Not in the UK and I suspect likewise in the US - just do what I, and I imagine many other owners did, get yourself a torque wrench (140nm).

No wrench, no jack, no spare in the US.

You shouldn't loosen bolts with a torque wrench by the way, so for a proper job you need two - a normal 17mm socket and a torque wrench which covers the 140nm range. I always carry a normal extendable socket wrench in my trunk for nostalgic self defense reasons whereas my torque wrench stays in my toolbox for working on the car at home.
