Good afternoon All,
I'm a relative newcomer to this great site/forums.
Apologies if this post by me seems rather peculiar but I am a little baffled that the Audi representative I am dealing with regarding my order has confirmed that the car does not come with a spare wheel/tyre.
Can those that are enjoying their new cars let me know if their vehicle did come with a spare wheel/tyre or whether you sourced this outside of your car purchase?
I am of the older school that does not buy into repair kits /expanding foam to fill up a punctured tyre to get me home. Give me a spare wheel/tyre any day of the week. Nothing would worry me more than doing a patch job on a punctured tyre and damaging an alloy. The Audi rep says that my order A3 Sportback (S-line) does not come with a spare although the brochure guide does intimate that it does.
Apparently the "car does not come with a spare as it is to keep the weight and emissions down", not my words and much to my amusement when I heard this.
