I don't notice that much more noise, but then again I've usually got the stereo playing pretty loud. With the armrest up though, I'd say there was virtually no difference.
By the way, I pulled the spare on my 535i and dropped some amps into the spare tire well as an experiment. The very next day my better half blew a hole the size of a half dollar out of the sidewall on a rear tire. I had to drive out with the spare I just took out and do the replacement. Moral of the story: Get AAA membership or run-flats if you are going to remove the spare. (I'm considering run-flats.)
