Yes. I sourced most of the bits in the UK.
Picked up the spacer flange and bolts from the supplier in Long Island (New York) on a visit to my daughter living in Connecticut.
The collapsible tyre came from a Mercedes and had never been used. I pumped it up and checked it, easy job only needs 35 psi. Not the 90 that the narrow space savers require.

Was bought for my Wife's R60 Countryman as she refuses to drive without a spare wheel and tools.

She had a bad experience with the gunk tyre repairs some years ago and was left for hours waiting for a transported recovery.

BUT she has now decided to part with her Countryman and is taking delivery of a BMW!
So seems I have to start again buying spare for the BM.

Have kept the Mini bits as the dealer isn't having them.

Should never let her go to the BMW / Mini garage on her own, the Countryman was only a year old and with 4000 miles on the clock

ps if you have any questions please ask.
