Lightbulb Switched to Contis, now need a Space Saver spare!

Just changed the tires on my X5 2011 X35D Sport from the original Dunlop runflats to Continentals Extreme Contact, a direct recommendation from my local BMW service rep. Could not be happier, the road noise of the Dunlops was extreme loud and the ride very stiff. We have a lot of speed bumps in my town, and it was like torture going over them with the run flats. I am still driving fairly aggressively with the Contis and did not find them to be in any way inferior to handling speeds in excess of 100 mph, and now at 90mph I can actually have a conversation with someone versus the awful roadnoise of the runflats. i think the sport package and the Contis is a very good combination.

I am looking for a Space Saver spare. In case anyone has one available, please let me know!
