Can I fit runflats to my BMW 1 Series?

I have recently purchased a BMW 118d cabriolet on sensible 16-inch wheels with 205 55 16 tyres. These are not run flats but I do not trust the tyre repair and inflation kit to work and know that you have had problems. I have contacted customer relations at BMW to see if I could fit runflats and as usual they will not give an answer but refer you back to your local dealer.

I have contacted two and one says yes and the other says no.Do you know which is correct?

BMW does not normally fit runflats on rims below 17-inch. But if the car has a tyre pressure monitoring system, no reason not to fit them. Try or
