Just curious, if you don't get standard RFT, then you must get a spare wheel right?
I did not see a space for spare wheel in any U.S. X1 videos, but I am willing to buy 1 after ditching the original RFT's. If I can't fit a spare wheel somewhere, then I will have to choice but to be doomed to a life of RFT's.
No, the X1 here comes with a a liquid kit as standard. You have to order the wheel option and we didnt. Regretting that now as I was upgraded to an Audi A3 at the airport recently and this also had no spare. And course as luck would have it, the first puncture in 20 years was lateral and around 4mm, the limit for the Audi kit.. When the rental company sent a truck 'to help' they could only take the car to the nearest Audi..
