Will someone with a spacesaver spare please have a look at what size it is and post here. I've looked through the forum and there is lots of discussion, but no mention of tyre size. Quite a few 18 inch wheels on eBay, but with varying tyre sizes ( eg 125/70/18 , and 195/75/18. Will either of them be suitable?

The wife is away with the car so can't check the detail, but my 2014 model has the colapsable spare wheel 195/75/18. You need an elecric pump to blow it up.

Thanks for the replies. Just bagged one for £100 inc delivery on ebay.
Are you sure that's the correct one? Going rate for the 195/75/18 collapsible spares are £200-£300.

I was quoted over double that from the dealer. They ain't cheap!

Having just used the space saver when I got a puncture on a brand new 20" tyre I have to say its an excellent bit of kit.

You get a foot pump to blow it up and there was no way I was doing that. Called the RAC out for a man with a trolley jack and a compressor.

Good idea Chopper with RAC and a proper compressor. Later Q5's come with a small compressor located in the left hand side cover of the boot. It's used for both the gunk kit and/or a spacesaver if supplied. I gather it takes an age to actually inflate the collapsible spare.

You would think there would be an compressed air cylinder available like the ones that repair and inflate the tyre but without the gunk.

Yep £100 for a 195/75/18. I've been lurking on ebay for a day or 2, and couldn't believe my luck.
Rang the dealer, they quoted £500, but would let me have one for £450. They wouldn't entertain the thought of ordering one for their demonstrator and passing it on (as suggested in other threads).
Here it is... looks mint http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/301507688031?_trksid=p2059210.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

For anyone else interested, there's one here for £120 that I nearly bought.
