    Spare Wheel?

    Do you get a spare wheel with other Audi models?

    With the A2, all you get is a cannister of foam and an air compressor.

    Re: Spare Wheel?

    Of my cars...

    Old A3 - Full size spare

    New A3 - Space Saver

    Old A4 - Full size spare

    May also be wheel size as opposed to car size dependant. You may get a 195 tyre in the 'well' but not a 225, meaning the necesity of a space saver, if you get my meaning.

    You don't get a spare with the new Porsche 911's. They give you the same thing: a pair of gloves and a can of "Fix-a-flat"!!
    So hey... think of your car as the poor man's Porsche!

    Got my A2 2nd hand 1 year old, the guy before got Audi to fit a spare wheel. Its a strange wheel which is stored flat, you then have to inflate it. Luckily never had to use it yet

    Yeah the spare wheel in the A2 is a factory option!!! I think at factory it used to be no cost option, but about 250 if you wanted to retro fit it.

    My A4 has a full size alloy spare.

    My Beetle has a full size steel spare.

    Re: Spare Wheel?

    My A3 came with a full size matching alloy.

    this might be a little off topic but does anyone know if a 17" alloy from an S3 will fit in the spare wheel well?
