    I actually really like this idea, does the wheel move around at all during 'spirited' driving?

    Where did you get the holder thing in the right hand side of the boot? I would like 1 of those.

    just think of the cost if you stuff a tyre - which someone did last week on the lakes run

    £40 recovery and £140 for a tyre ! ....and to be honest was lucky to get it sorted !

    as for weight normal day to day use you wont notice it

    true - but the spacesaver isnt directional so no problems for left or right on the car
