Tire Bay Insert

I purchased the spare tire as I replaced my RFT's. The tire compartment does not contain the black insert. Does anyone have a comment about inserting the insert ($150.00) as it might help with sound insulation.

Try the below.....item 16. I'd be interested to hear what kind of prices you find as I'll be looking for one too. I only got the spare for road trips when you might not be near a replacement RFT.

Just a thought...I always keep an old bedspread in the trunk of my cars, just in case. On the X5, I spread it out around the spare tire to act as sound insulation while it's stored. Free and really easy installation (actually, no installation!).
