    Spare tire issue resolved

    Based on what my dealer told me this afternoon the following option will be available for the 997 too.

    What about a jack and lug wrench?

    Re: Spare tire issue resolved

    I'm sure if you order this option jack and lug wrench would be included too.

    Sounds right, reason for optimism, but in my experience dealers/salesguys have made up so much stuff (BS) that I don't believe anything they say until Porsche sez it.

    Wouldn't that be amusing--"oh, you want a jack and lug wrench, too. That will be option Px345, which costs $X".

    I saw that in the Boxster preliminary order guide too--maybe Porsche does read these boards. I wonder if they went the other way around and made deleting the spare and providing fix-a-flat spray a no cost option (much like sunroof delete on a 966/997 coupe). Wonder if there'd be many takers?

    I bet there would be 1 guy out of a 1000 would would order the car without a spare.

    I'd like to meet the guy who orders the car without a spare tire.

    I'd try to explain that he can always remove it himself if he heads to the track.


    Re: Spare tire issue resolved

    I surely hope it's a no-cost option. Otherwise it would be a cop out.

    Also... have they provided for attachment hardware and if stored flat on the bottom a top cover/shelf?

    BTW... I just had to mount the spare on my car and the PAG mounting tools are very poor quality. The lug wrench is soft aluminum and it is small / requires a lot of force.
