Should there be a jack in the boot, or not as there is no spare wheel?
No jack on the Ms
adds too much weight so they chucked it on the M's
if it gets a puncture....just walk away and leave it...its broke!
It's me thats 'flat broke'
Note to self - stop buyin stuff [-x
thanks for info :-bd
Surely theres a jack to take the flat tyre off or have i had too much to drink /
Nope no jack at all. I guess the thinking is that you have got to the place that does the new tyre/repair so they do it by that point. You do get a couple of spanners and a tow hook which is handy if you should get stuck in a gravel trap, or in mud on a field which is when i have used it
I think you are wrong there, i could go to my m now and photograph the tool kit and there is a jack, otherwise i wouldnt have jacking points
Come on board reply ;
Surely there's a jack so you can change a tyre yourself. Would have thought tool kit would be standard across range.
Sorry was on the S10 forum working out how to change the diff oil
I can't actually photograph, mine as you know
There is a moulding for it in the boot but they weren't supplied with the cars so it's quite likely someone put one in yours afterwards
What's the point of taking the wheel off at the side of the road if you have nothing else to put on?
Why do you have to be at the side of the road with a flat... you might want to change a wheel in your garage.
Well good point but what you are saying is if you wanted to perhaps change your brake pads then it not possible to jack the car up. we will have a poll who has a jack and who hasnt...... Hornel z3m 1
Come on keep up for gods sake
you're already 2 - 1 down Hornel from the start of this thread :ymbringiton:
Excuse me Sir, one does not change ones own brake pads on an M, one takes it to the BMW trained technicians and they do it for you.
I remember reading all the press about not having the spare. It upset the 50:50 weight distribution and they calculated how many times you actually got a flat and so went with the inflation kit.
Snoops - If you're inclined to take the tyre off in your garage then i think BMW assumed you would have the jack already
Is there anything to undo the wheel nuts even, i don't remember if there is?
Aren't the jacking points used by the lifts in the service bays?
Some of us are still working at 18:40 on a Friday night
Just looked in M3.........no jack.!
Z has a wheel brace though. reason for asking was a plastic clip and nut with nothing to hold lying in the kit area?
AND we have a party here tonight that i need to help prepare for, i would invite you if you could make it in time
C'mon Hornel, that's 3 to 1 now - you're move
I think the plastic mould in the boot is fairly standard across the range so has the space for a jack but never a jack supplied as standard
Still waiting for Hornel - has he gone to sleep now?
