One thing I will definitely not be doing is go to a scrap yard to look for a spare and stick it in the boot. I'm not sure what I will do should I get a puncture, either have a go at a quick repair or call the breakdown service.
Yes and as well as chucking a grubby scrapyard spare into the nice new interior (even if you could find one) don't forget you then need a jack, breaker bar and suitable socket........again with no stowage space for them.
