It has a spare tire that the BMW MINIs don’t have. XD http://twitter.com/matthewwanderer Matthew Easy, now. R50’s are quite sensible in this way. MikeUK A spare that I always took out or left upright. I got tail-ended many years ago whilst waiting in a queue. The impact blew both fuel caps off (I never found them!) but the spare tyre pushed the back seat bulkhead forwards a foot, which would have killed anyone in the back. Nowadays I’m glad not to have a spare that transfers the impact forwards. Chris Bamford love it Pete Mitchell old news Scott Eaves Then just stay away if everything you read is old news.
