  • No spare wheelm opn vxr...

    Y does the corsa vxr not come with this? if i take it to somewhere far like europe then i'm screwed if i have a puncture in the middle of the night because there won't be any garages open. I'll be spending time looking for garage.

    Would the corsa emergency kit be like the Holts Tyreweld which messy up your inside alloy and the tyre needs replacing.

    I am looking to puchase a vxr. The list price is 15,500. What sort of discount have you guys got? £13,500 ok? Did you go to blakes? Is it easier to get more discountin terms of % if spend more on extras? thanks

    The Astra does not come with a spare wheel either. Does the Corsa not have run flats then?

      If the rest of the range have a space saver wheel as a spare, then it could be the same deal as the Astra, Veccy and Zaffy VXRs.

      The problem is that a space saver (or money saver if your Vauxhall) won't fit over the front brakes, and so to stop their owners from having the chance to damage their brakes, by trying to fit a small wheel over a large opening, Vauxhall simply don't give you a spare wheel.

      When mine comes I'll check out the wheel well and see if it can hold a full size spare.

            The centre exit exhaust sits where the wheel well would normally be! Sacrifices have to be made in this case.

                    I've never had a flat tyre in any of my cars, touch wood. Had a modified saxo for 3 years, and had to remove the spar to fit a zorst to that, so never really had the need for one! I've never got anything in my boot so suppose I could just lob one in there!

                    Actually, anyone got an idea of how much a VXR 18" wheel will be??

                        You get the compressor and tyre weld kit and as rightly said it is because the spare won't fit over the brakes. All four wheels have tyre monitors in them so you will know if you pick up a puncture.

                        As for discount £13k!!!!!!!! Best being offered 5% on ABT.
