Default Spare Tire and Jack

Where can I buy a spare tire and jack for a 2017 Q50 redsport? The dealer is ridiculous on his prices.

Unless you have spare tire mounting package (which you obviously do not) - even if you get matching donut - you will have hard time placing it in the trunk. Get air compressor and slime kit. If you must have scissor jack - standard Nissan one fits just fine.
Beside - if you have towing as part of insurance, or as part of Michelin total care (up to 150 miles tow) - why do you care about 50 miles spare?
Worse comes to worst - have a can of fix-a-flat (I managed to drive 20K on tire with it inside and no further repairs -rear one)

2017 Q60RS white/white when not dirty which is always.

Hello, picking up this thread again, and thanks to those ahead of me, as I was able to purchase a spare, with the proper tools and foam for my '15 hybrid. Found on ebay for less than $250 shipped.

One tool is "missing", thoughts as to what it is and what it does? Please see items in red.

thanks again!

My "Spare" from the dealership did not have that "tool." I am also interested as to what that is?

Same here, I have always wondered about that. If I remember correctly my G35 had a “shift lock” near the shifter. Or maybe it’s for popping out the center cap to get to the lug nuts? But our cars don’t have those type of wheels.

Nothing to see here...

After popping the cap off the shift lock release on a Q50, you use the mechanical key that is in the fob to release the shift lever. I have no idea what the function of that tool is.

I'm gonna guess Osa500 is correct that the tool is/was included for vehicles that had a cover over the lug nuts that had to be pried off before a tire change. The other end probably served some purpose in another vehicle (maybe even for another car manufacturer as I gotta believe this stuff is sourced from an outside supplier) for loosening a nut of some kind...or tightening a recovery hook or something. Vehicles that didn't need it didn't get it...no need to make a different foam holder.

2018 Iridium Blue, AWD, Q50 Red Sport w/ Sensory and ProACTIVE packages and an illuminated grille emblem that is no longer anything special as my neighbor's lowly Chevy truck has one too.

A $0.02 sticker that says "intentionally left empty" would quell owners from thinking a tool was "missing ".
