Mein Auto: X5, 330ci
Should factory spare match factory wheels on car...

The reason why I ask is because in my new X5 3. sport edition I have the sport package with the style 131 wheels and somehow the spare is the normal nonsport style 130. I asked my sales manager and he said it was because BMW makes the spare fit so it will go on either the front or the back however... in my 330ci I have an M style 68 wheel as a spare but fitted for the front so it can be used interchangably ... it seems like i should have gotten a style 131 wheel but just one fitted for the front

All 2004 3.0 have style 130, 17" as spare wheels, sport or non-sport. I think even the 4.4 have that as their spares, not 100% sure though.

I think they just go for a bulk standard spare, i.e the base version for everyone.

even my 21" Alpina's just have a base 17" spare and boy does it look stupid when you put it on, a sort of giant space saver.
