DIY Does a MCS come with Air Compressor pump for flat tyre?

Bought a second hand MCS R56 3 weeks ago and decided the other day to look what the spair tyre looks like but to my surprise realized that the mini does not come with a spair. that explains why the MCS comes out with Run on Flat tyres. After looking in my Manual I noticed that they show in there that you get a mini air compressor. My question is; Does the MCS come standard with this compressor or do you have to buy it as an extra?

No... If you get runflats, you don't get a compressor.

Compressor and sealant kit is only supplied as standard with car if non run flats were fitted at manufacture.

I dont need to make my car go faster, I just need to learn to drive it faster.

Assuming your using normal (i.e. not runflat tires) Get a RING compressor (£35) and a can of Tireweld (£7) from Halfords/Amazon.

In fact, get the compressor anyway, saves u queueing up on the forecourt I got the RING RAC630 after reading some reviews and it works great.

I bought an electric high pressure tyre inflater even though I have run flats, just to save going into the garage to check the pressures, run flats do have a higher than normal inflation pressure, bit hard work with a foot pump.

I use a pressure for front/rear tyres of Bar 2.50 = 36 psi.

The run flats need a higher air pressure than normal tyre's. I check the pressures once a month. If you don't do this you will find the tread wears quicker on the outside tread.

I also have a high pressure tyre inflator which I run off the cigarette lighter plug. The garage tyre inflater's tend to be very inaccurate

On a related topic, does the models with run flat tyres come with a jack or wheel brace?

We are in the process of buying second hand and it doesn't have either - want to know whether to complain or not?

Cheers, Paul

Yes should do, mine had run flats as standard and came with a brace and jack too. Better complain
However youre in Australia, they might have differences there to here, like kangeroos etc

Paul,

I am in Brisbane, and own a 2007 MCS, if I remember correctly I do not have a jack or wrench. I assume MINI Australia think if get a puncture we will drive on the Runflats to the garage. I am planning on adding a jack wrench and can of tyre weld as I am planning on getting rid of the Runflats.

Maybe they were thinking you might want to jack it up and rotate the wheel to a spot that wasnt flat
