OMG - Love my run flats

Sold my 135 as the lease was high, wasn't driving it to get any benefit. With the 135 I ditched the Bridgestone RE050 run-flats for PSS...a fantastic upgrade.

NOW Couldn't work out what to buy as a cheap 2nd car then stumbled across a 130i.
Besides being 95% of a 135 for a 3rd the price the P-Zero runflats are awesome. Quiet, rides well and grip is V high! Perhaps the extra power of the 135 makes the difference but highly recommend the P-Zero run flat for 130i

I had a completely different experience with the P-Zero run flats on my 125i. Had them after the Bridgestone S001 run flats and the bridgestones were a hell of a lot better.
The P-Zero were a little quieter but the grip wasn't as outstanding in both wet and dry conditions.
Had enough of runflats after that and just got myself a set of nitto invo tyres, world of difference.

that's strange

My 130 has option 18's and with a 2nd hand car it may had had suspension upgrades don't know but I took it out of town on a favourite (old) road on a wet quiet day and pushed as hard as I dare and was stunned how good the car and tyres are. The balance and grip was beyond sane road limits -IMHO better than my 135. And I have never liked Pirelli's before on any car until the Scorpion Verdes on the wifes truck and now the P-Zero rft
