just tried the space saver on my 1.4 limited edition I got fits well although its a bit flat should have 60psi only got 15psi when fitted, the full jack kit works also centre removal tool total cost £47.50. this is only a temporary wheel, just to save me using that horrid gel stuff :D and fits in the boot with pump gel and a few other bits all under the carpet

I know it does look small but done some research and it seems all space savers come up small hopefully never have to use it if I do it would only be to get to the nearest tyre shop

Hi Anthony, useful info, thank you.

I will go with a full size spare I think, same rim and tyre size as other tyres. I'm not too bothered by the extra weight.

Which jack is it (Corsa E?) and did you have any problems trying to find the sill locations with the side skirts in the way?

What happens to the tyre pressure monitoring systems when you change the wheel ?? do you get warning lights over the dash ??
I only fitted to make sure it cleared the calipers which it did so I didn't drive it or start it up,but I would imagine it would then it is only a temporary fix

I wonder if you can buy the polystyrene insert for the boot compartment on the right hand side for storing the tool kit in like you get on Corsa D's equipped with spare wheel. Would prefer this to the tool bag that comes in some Mk4 Astra's or even the polystyrene insert that goes under the spare wheel in tye well itself on Vectra Cs, Insignias and Astra Hs and Js as that looks more factory fit.

Vauxhall website configurator also lists as an option a space saver spare in lieu of the tyre inflation kit, £95 I think it is, unfortunately my car was already built or I'd have ordered it if only for the polystyrene kit with tools in it and the different boot carpet you get on Corsas with spares then all I'd have needed was the full spare instead of everything.

I thought the spare wheel kit was over £200

Maybe to buy after buying the car and ordering from the parts department either as a complete kit or in separate parts but definitely as a factory option its £95.

Its a bit like how the electronic climate control is a £395 option from the factory but to go to a dealer and order all the parts you'd need to fit it afterwards yourself would probably cost 3 or 4 times that.
