I'm not the OP but I did the upgrade a number of months ago (December 2013) and you can see that my fuel economy didn't change much. If anything, the change is because we use the E46 on the highway...

That's the same wheel mine has and all the buttons work. Perhaps someone did a retrofit but didn't program the electrics? It would be worthwhile checking that things are hooked up for the buttons....

Sorry, I should have stated that I couldn't find it on my own, but the tire shop did, it was very small. All of the flats have been sidewall punctures and the tire had to be replaced.
