I bought one a while ago, it's the sort of thing that you hope you never need but silly not to have one handy. Lot cheaper and smaller than the spare wheels I've lugged around for about 15 years and never used.

Pretty much my thinking as well... although I don't think my mechanic would be happy to see me after the last job he did for me

Steffen Nahnsen makes them at the moment. His latest listing has expired but if you ask he may relist them https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Audi-A8-A...-/124234712611

Also he put a visitor post on my FB page a while back so you could message him on there instead
