I just got a nice pop up one from Amazon with plenty of 5* reviews, just measure the space available and buy one that fits. £10-15 IIRC, fits snugly and looks the part.


Got a linky...??

No spare tyre? Do many people choose to leave the spare at home and take tyre-weld/similar?

Told my wife I quite fancied some designer luggage for the 911 for the forthcoming French trip which at £400 plus seemed good value.
She came back from a car boot sale with an old "Head" sports bag in good condition, in black which matched the boot trim and with the little plastic wheels on it.
I hated the fact it not only fitted the boot perfectly, but was cavernous and had only cost a pound.
I'm still using it and don't tell anyone, it's bloody brilliant... Laughing

It's the modern way I guess...My 996 has a spare tyre, a jack,and compressor and a toolkit with a spanner set and screw driver..
My 987 Boxster has a can of foam and a compressor not even a jack Dont know

I think for UK driving the foam and compressor is fine , but based on some recent threads about the difficulty getting our size tyres easily in Europe now I have concerns about should I carry a spare even if its deflated if I am in Europe.

Also, the "frunk" shown is a C4 S, so the spare when is under the floor with a jack and tool kit, and the amp, if Bose is fitted.

Here you go, £13

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00LBWHJBE/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Probably a better umbrella than the original as well, fills the gap nicely.
Comes with a sleeve to fit into to give it a smoother look when fitted.

Grrrr, link is misbehaving.

Just search on Amazon for
PLEMO Auto Open Close Compact Travel Folding Umbrella £12.99

Hope that helps.

I totally agree.. it is a risk if something major happens with a tyre whilst abroad... Obviously the only logical answer to this problem is to take a spare with you and leave the wife at home Dont know Laughing
