    Full Size Spare

    Hi,

    Just signed up to forum and currently looking at ordering a new Passat (company car) I have a 65 plate one at present so am familiar with the car, one option that wasn't available when I ordered my present car was the full size spare (only space saver was available then ). Does anyone know if the full size spare reduces the boot space (which it did on an Insignia I had)?

    I tried the official VW online chat but they were useless - and I am hoping that someone one here can save me a trip to a dealer!!

    TIA

    First posts normally go in introductions else you could get a free fix and we never see you again!!!

    Some have the space saver as mine does. It depends how big the spear wheel well is. Ask a dealer.

    It is an option but I don’t know what the physical impact would be.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
