Hi Guys,
I'm about to join your ranks (I sincerely hope; delivery next Tuesday...)
with the arrival of an M Sport 225xe.
It's an ex-demo. with 2+ years left of BMW warranty.
Quaetion.
What 'equipment' (charge leads, Jack?, Tyre pumper upper etc) should I check are present on delivery?
Any and all thoughts are extreeeeeemely welcome!
Yours (positively quivering with anticipation about the new arrival!) gratefully.

An add-on, please, to my earlier plea for help. And an apology; 'Question' is not, ever, spelled 'Quaetion'....
Any thoughts on Charge Point installation?
Thanks in anticipation of your pearls of wisdom.

You won’t have jack or tyre inflator due to having run flats.

Cheers for that, and for the 'Run Flat' prompt. That will be another first for me and with zero facility to change a wheel 'on the go' it doubtless makes tyre replacement with runflats a foregone conclusion.
The brochure download from BMW is apparently silent on the topic of wheel nut security keys and the like while the owners manual (download: another first...) seems to require details of the car which I will not possess until delivery.
Many thanks for your input.
Regards

My e90 i have now is the first car i have had with run flats, i didn’t know much about them or what to expect at the time. i had the tyre pressure warning came up on my idrive last year & thought i just needed to put some air in the tyres. This came on over a couple of days & i thought i had a problem with the system, but it was a nail in the tyre which fortunately still was repaireable without the cost of a new tyre. It does enable you to drive still for a few more miles,not sure how many as i was local when I had my puncture.
The vehicle will have a locking wheel nut on each wheel & the removal nut will be in the bmw tool kit. I don’t know about the brochure / owners manuals because mine has those in the leather wallet to do with the car.

Regards
Rich
