I've had 3 A250's eng by AMG with HK upgraded stereo (subwoofer in wheel well ) and they've all had inflation kits, I've had over 50 cars and all my life always had a spare wheel and changed my own wheels after puncture etc, before switching to MB I had Clio RS's no spare and sometimes no jack !, so I always got a spare wheel, however the other night for the first time ever I called MB Assist for a puncture, the service was exceptional ;
Your MB assist is included providing you have main dealer service, I think this helps justify the price they charge but if you get a service plan currently free for 3 years with new A's brilliant.
When your Mercedes-Benz service is carried out ata Retailerand is completed to the manufactured guidelines, your complimentary Roadside Assistance cover is renewed until the next service is due*</font></span>
So perhaps we no longer need spares I've decided for now to do without and see how things go</span>
UPDATE - I've just been to the car to check what's there and because it comes with TYREFIT KIT there is no jack or wheelbrace</span></font>
I'm currently doing fairly long distance motoring (600 mile round trips) and am also planning a couple of thousand miles from UK to Spain and don't fancy relying on the tyre inflation kit. Can anyone advise on whether a full size wheel and tyre (18") will fit in the spare wheel well or do I need to buy a space saver? Obviously a full size replacement is preferable. I have an A200cdi AMG Sport without HK amp. I appreciate that I'd also need to get a scissor jack & wheelbrace. Many thanks in anticipation of your replies.
