    My car by the previous owner has been fitted with S4 alloys and in the boot they have put a space saver spare. So far I have the insert which sits in the wheel but am missing other bits has anyone got a pic of what they have I can compare to?

    Just looked at the brochure and standard equipment on the A4 is a "full sized spare wheel" for all models except for the 1.8T S-Line and cars that were ordered with 18's from factory.....these came with a space saver.

    There was also no charge if you wanted a space saver at ordering too...........all models

    The car by the chassis number and PR codes was fitted from the factory with the 5 spoke 17"s and a full size spare alloy. The previous owner also had an S4 which he had tuned up and fitted bigger brakes too but the factory S4 18"s didn't fit over the brakes so fitted them to his other car, which is the one I brought off him.

    In the car when I got it was the space saver spare, the tool kit and the jack in the two side pods. I have purchased the foam insert for the spare but have from looking at ETKA seen I need a foam insert which sit's under the wheel first against the boot floor. All I am trying to find out now is if the cover over it all is the same as a the one for a full size alloy spare as the part numbers are pretty much identical besides one has a B on the end which indicates a supersession so just trying to find out what the differences are.

    Hmmm might try to find some 1.8T S-Line avants then see what the difference is.

    Thank you for looking for me. If at all possible could you get a picture of both sides of the cover for me? My cover has the same part no but without the B on the end so I want to compare to see what the difference is. Many thanks if you can.
