I have heard that this is the standard kit for dealing with a flat tyre - I
think on TTRs. In the UK, the TTC has a space saver wheel - still not
brilliant, but it's difficult to store a full size wheel in the size of car
we have. So I wouldn't worry too much - just make sure you know how to use
the spray ... or sort out a recovery service.
Not sure about the TT, but in the UK the A3 now comes with the
spray/compressor as standard, with the space-saver wheel as a no-cost
I'd imagine the TT has a space for a space-saver wheel where the
spray/compressor is atm? If so then I'd seriously consider buying one.
The two problems with the spray/compressor solution are:
1. It doesn't help if you have a major blow-out.
2. If you have a simple puncture, such as a nail, then using the spray
will wreck the tyre and you'll need a new one rather than a simple
