I had to replace my front near side tyre after 600 miles, having kerb it. ( a bulge appeared on the side wall)
I notice that you have done 2000 miles, I noticed in the handbook that if your Q3 Quattro requires a tyre change, and you have worn some of the tread you need to replace two tyres to get top performance from the 4x4. Basically you cannot have big a difference in tread depth, on opposite sides of the vehicle
I reckon you will be ok having only done 2000 miles
Had a spare, told the dealer that i would not buy the car unless they let me have the spare.Its time that all cars came with spare wheels again, we also have a bmw when the tyre split on that all we had was the usless tin of gunk not even a jack is supplied with it the split was too big to be repaired.Only when customers insist on a spare wheel will they start putting them back in they are just taking the xxxx
HiSorry to bring you bad news but never buy tyres from the dealer, they are a **** of a lot cheaper elsewhere.The trade off for not having a spare is that your car probably fits in a lower tax bracket because the weight saving.
hi del i didnt get the tyre from a dealer so it wasnt a dealer inflated price.Surely the tax bracket is the same weather your carcomes with out a spare wheel or you order one at time of sale ,it should not be an option but should come as standard.
My dealer has supplied just the space saver as an aftersales originally at £75, but then included it as part of the agreed discounted price.
I have the lower boot floor, cargo net etc option ( this can hold it in place ) when I have it in the car. It also has the can of sticky stuff.
Tell the dealer most of what you want, then agree to deal subject to this, then that and so on. The when ready to sign, ask for something else.
Just had two new front tyres put on at 26k miles they were down to the riser (less than 2mm left)
Good Year Excellence 235/55/ R17 99v come off, replaced with Continentals. Rear Tyres still have 6mm on then (8mm new?)
Hi; The tyre indicator showed I had a problem on the off/side rear and sure enough I found a nail. Needed new tyre at 8,000miles and there not cheap. Now have 11,000 miles since new in January 2012 - 177ps s-tronic, monsoon grey with Alcantara, 5 spoke wheels and reversing camera. No probs so far and very pleased overall. May change in Jan 2014, hope electric rear door is an option as on Q5 AC Bristol
