What's the cheapest way to source a spare wheel?

My Jaguar XF doesn't have a spare wheel. I would like to buy a 'get you home spare wheel' and jack to go with it. I'm having problems finding one at the right price. Any suggestions, please?

It's quite expensive - as you have found - to get a space saver from Jaguar. But you could try an online auction site and find a used one. The other option, which will probably cost the least, is to speak to some breakers and get the space saver from a scrapped XF. Speak to a few and you'll be able to negotiate a discount without too much trouble.

Good looking estate version of the XF. Gets self-levelling rear suspension as standard. As good to drive as the saloon. Usefully wide and square boot area.
