That said I googled the tyres on the car for a bit more info, apparently their runflats, so I'm wondering if I need a spare after all?


I wouldn't have thought runflats are fitted?

Re: 500x Adjustable Boot Floor with Spare Wheel

If I remember correctly from my days running a BMW Mini, if the tyres are runflat it is marked on the sidewall somewhere.

Re: 500x Adjustable Boot Floor with Spare Wheel

Just remembered I took some pics of them earlier and just had a look, then googled, they aren't runflats. Im glad, they were on the bmw 3 series i used to hire and they affect the ride negatively. I'll keep the spare wheel.

I've read some cars have a gel or something for punctures but i cant see an of that in my boot, and i cant see the emergency fuel filler nozzle. The jack's there though.

One thing im starting to think would be a good idea is the rubber boot floor, i dont want that compartmentalised thingy at all, just the rubber mat with the 500 logo on it, which is about 40 quid, anyone got one?
Thanks Alanw47 thanked for this post

Rubber boot mat I do have. It's OK. At the very least it keeps muddy dog away from carpet

Yeh I've got one. Just keeps the boot clean, and it's fitted to the car so it doesn't move about

Re: 500x Adjustable Boot Floor with Spare Wheel

Yes got the boot mat for my car, unlike boot mats I have had for other cars it does not stop things sliding around but it does have a lip all around so contains any spillage. Also it is not very flexible so taking it out to get rid of any dirt/liquid is very easy. A lot for what it is but are not all genuine extras.
