    You don’t need to spend a vast amount of money to do this mod, I’ve just done the same for my Mum’s 2018 Sportback as we didn’t like the idea of having no spare.
    I ended up buying an 18” Mk 1 TT space-saver from eBay for the grand sum of £40, part number 1J0 601 027M.
    I believe this is the same wheel that comes in the Audi “kit” .
    I also bought the storage tray that goes over the wheel (when fitted) , but you don’t actually need this tray if you don’t need the various storage compartments.
    The plastic screw and nut to hold down the wheel were also fitted, although some say you don’t need these either, I didn’t like the idea of an unsecured wheel so 4G0 803 899 & 4G0 804 899 were purchased too.

    Hi many thanks for the reply but the bit were you say that about the storage compartments the car we have has the compartments round the
    Hi many thanks for your reply please see image is your mom"s car the same as this and did you need to remove the storage compartment to fit the wheel as there seems to be plenty of room to fit the wheel with this left in but I may be wrong

    cheers bj

    Here is the spare wheel well of the car as it came from the factory with a few extra pieces my mum has added , and the plastic screw to hold the spare wheel down..... AB86ADE8-E53B-4971-812C-7E8ABBFCE71C.jpeg

    The next image shows the space-saver wheel fitted on top of this existing organiser , and secured in place with the spare wheel securing nut.....

    I have to admit that I made a bit of a mistake when ordering the parts for this job, in error I bought the storage organiser shown in this last picture as I thought that the foam organiser in the 1st picture above was not used any more!
    I had assumed it had to be removed in order to fit the spare wheel but then discovered that not to be the case!
    Obviously it fits over the spare wheel (once you have removed the wheel securing nut) and once fitted the wheel nut can be put back in to secure the whole lot down.....
    So, you don’t need this last piece really, I was lucky that I picked it up for only £32.95 delivered on EBay and it does give you plenty of additional storage for those essential bits!

    Hope that all makes sense.....?
