Tyre Inflation Kit (Missing)

As many of you have found out on delivery the tyre inflation kit was missing.
My dealer had just posted me a pump, I canít help but feel it should be an inflation sealant, along with some sort of foam to hold it all in place under the boot?
What have you got?

Mines was missing as well, dealer took one out another car but there is nowhere for it to strapped down. In my M3 there was a place for it along with straps to hold it down

Stows nicely under the boot floor.

I realize International Markets provide different options and equipment, but you definitely should have an inflation kit if you did not get the spare. Somebody, somewhere seems to have dropped the ball. Would respectfully be insistent that your Dealer provide you with one (whatever the type looks like in your region).

Here is what we get if we option for the 'Mobility Kit' which deletes the spare:

No mobility kit on collection.

Dealer ordered one. After RIS today I was greeted with two cardboard boxes which contained a pump and what I can only assume is a can of foam??

No plastic storage mould to keep it under the boot floor like other pics I've seen on here and elsewhere....

You need to ask for the foam holder then! Nearly there!

I have those two items also, however my dealer put mine in the right hand side compartment in the boot. Which tbh is a good idea cos the central compartment under the floor can be used for storing other things.

That's a good shout actually... a good storage place to store something you will forget about until you need it!

Hello. Tire puncture on the road is quite a common problem for me. I recently bought a JETHAX air compressor, which I saw at https://tehno.guru/best-portable-air...essor-for-car/ . I really like this compressor. When he gets the right pressure, he stops himself, and you do not need to watch that the tire does not explode. It is also equipped with flashlights that help use it in the dark.
