Been down to the Ford dealers today and ordered the velour car mats and the scuff plates. I asked about the space saver spare wheel, after looking on the computer, he said" the computer say's no". I'll have to order a 15" steel wheel and tyre with car jack costing nearly 150. Told him where to go.
Has anyone ordered the spare wheel with their new car and was it a space saver?
Will a MK6 space saver fit a MK7?

Have something to contribute?

I don't know how Ford work. I went to another dealer last wednesday and their computer couldn't find a part number for the scuff plates.

I got my Zetec S (Mk7) 3 weeks ago and call me old fashioned but preferred the tried and trusted technology of a spare wheel to the inflation kit. Since I specified at time of order I'm 100% sure it was a no cost option

Eh up Jack I can answer this one, if you choose the steel spare wheel at time of ordering then its 30

I think its a better option than the tyre inflating kit (which apparently seals holes upto an inch long in the sidewall Fords tell me !!) at least with a spare you know you will get home. I think Fords will add the change to ya order providing the car is not very close to being manufactured (not sure when the cut off is sorry)

By the time I decided that I would be happier with a spare wheel and made some enquiries it was too late as the car was being manufactured (hurrah) and I could order it as a post delivery option (which I have). It cost a few pennies short of 120 and I ordered it last week (so thats an up-to-date price), it comes with a wheel brace and jack too.

I know I could have had it for 30 but thats my fault for not ordering at the time. Imagine if you want one but don't pay the extra how pee'vd will ya be if ya brake down and your inflating kit doesn't work !!!

Good luck to those who do better and haggle Fords to do it for 30, if ya can

I've already got the car , arrived last week. 3 weeks after ordering I asked for the spare wheel, and was told they would sort it out when the car arrived. Now I'm told no space saver, and a 15" steel wheel is the only option for about 100+. Looks like we're in the same boat, lets hope it's not a Ford, as they probably wouldn't sell us a paddle. :lol: :P

Same as me except basicaly i was waiting for 2months for my no cost option space saver spare, but in that time the sales bod who had been dealing with me from day one had left so i complained like a trooper and the sales manager eventualy took a 15" steelie with jack+brace from a demonstrator and plonked it in mine for nowt lol. On top of that i got to keep the inflation kit as a bonus for the inconvenience B)

No cost option for me too when I ordered the car in March. In fact the dealer specced it with the wheel so I didn't have to remind him.

If my ford dealer doesn't have a mk7 space saver wheel part number, can I get a MK6 space saver to fit?

just been to my Ford dealer, the MK6 space saver won't fit the MK7. So if Ford can't supply a wheel who can? I,ve looked on the web but :angry: can't find one
