Why two spare wheels? Surely it dint come with the car. Does it not block your storage place?

Just realized the importance of having a pressure gauge and a foot pump.
I had a flat in the midst of nowhere and had to get someone to take my spare to get it filled/checked, while I lifted the car and loosened the tyre. then waited for christmas and my spare tyre came fit to roll and the usual after that...
I realized that if I had a gauge- I'd check my spare and with the foot pump get it set and then do the obvious instead of the circus and the waiting!

So this is added to my 'lives in my car' list.

MODS: Could you Please change this thread to "Stuff that Lives in my Car"

saw a taxi guy with an ice box / cooler that was 12'' x 8'' and he had 4 RED BULLs in there. said it was for night driving (2 at a time).. also added that his owner replenishes his stock after a long / night drive. He swears by the drink!
Maybe we'll soon have RB endorsements for taxis!
