Considering buying a spacesaver spare wheel as forgot to order with my vehicle.
They are £175 on E bay, but some forums say a S type space saver will fit and they are £40.

Can anybody confirm that and S type will fit ?

What I did was to order up the Xf without any hifi gear at the bottom of the wheel well. This enabled me to get a full sized spare in the boot easily plus all the tools etc and a spare fuel can (rounded in shape) from Mercedes which goes into the inside of the wheel via a bolt.
The silly reason for this was a puncture in the side wall in the UK and I could not envision driving for miles on end on the Motorways limited in speed on the spacesaver until I got back to Germany. I purchased a new tyre and ran on the spacesaver in the Uk for 2 days until the new tyre came into stock.
