Hi Everyone

Sounds a daft question but what should my boot have in it?

I’m assuming as I have run flats that there’s no spare wheel and that as there’s no spare wheel, there is no need for a jack?

Thing is, what should there be?

It’s a C300h 2015 AMG LINE Premium Plus.

Thank in advance

Should probably be a tin/can of tyre puncture gunk and a plug in tyre inflation pump .

If the car has run flats then the boot should have a beautiful high quality liner across the floor, and nowt else.

If anything like mine (2017 W213), then nowhere near enough to keep me happy. :mad:

I got a small compressor, no tyre gunk as far as I'm aware, a nice cargo net, an adaptor for the stupid hub cap/wheel trim (yet no spanner to fit it) and that's it. No jack or wheel brace. When questioned, the salesman explained that, in the event of a puncture, I have to phone MB on the emergency number and they'll come out to me with a space saver. I then have to get my tyre repaired or replaced and drop the spare off at a dealership.

Not 100% impressed I must admit...

That sounds really quick to get you mobile again (not).

And I bet there's nowhere for the flat tyre to go either....

In the boot?

Or on the passengers lap if fully loaded :rolleyes:


I was going to be juvenile and reply 'foot' to the OP question :D:D

Just been out to check mine, more out of curiosity than anything else. There actually is some of the tyre gunk stuff but it's a different type to what I'm used to, hence my thinking that there wasn't any. It looks like it screws into the compressor somehow so I may have a play tomorrow.

Oh, there's also a couple of Hi-Viz vests I can wear while I'm waiting for recovery because of a puncture...

Thanks everyone. Been enlightening!

Well it could live in the boot I suppose, it would just meant moving any luggage and stuff out to get a big heavy and dirty wheel in there.

My 20 year old BMW Z3 has a wheel bag in with the full tool kit and jack in the compartment in the boot floor. It has a skinny spare too. Never had to use it. Regress to the 21st century and nada :D:D

There is none in the 21st century because you never had to use it in the 20th..!
