I've been driving for 40 years now and have never had a flat a compressor would not have resolved enough to get me home. So I carry a compressor and will soon put on non-run flat tires. I would prefer to have a spare but am not willing to give up the trunk space and money to get a spare. I use and recommend a Viair 70P with the extra accessory outlet that clips to the battery - both available for about $50 from Amazon. If I take a really long trip in the bimmer, I might also carry a cheap plug kit. I would prefer to limp the car with the compressor, however, and get proper plug installed from inside the tire.
