    Quattro Space Saver spare - does it fit front and back?

    Just a peace of mind question really, I seem to remember reading somewhere that the 8P space saver only fits on the rear wheels, is that correct?

    It'd just be useful to know in case of a front tyre problem! Although it'd be a right pain swapping the wheels around on the side of the road if that's the case!

    I cant answer im afraid, but id be amazed if it only fits the rear. Would be kind of pointless including one.
    Genrerally, space savers fit any wheel. But i dont know for sure on your car.

    only fits on the rear of S3's due to size of the front brakes. (caliper clearance is the immediate issue)

    So a wheel shuffle is necessary.

    Ah right, mine's only a lowly 170 TDi so I'm probably okay then
