I wouldn't worry about it. My second automotive life is as a Miata nut, and we all yank the donut in the name of trunk space. A cell phone and a AAA card are far smaller, lighter, and probably more effective. ;) The only time I've ever lost a low-profile tire (on another car), it was sufficiently trashed that the mobility kit wouldn't have done squat.
: 2)Silver or Oxford Green?
Personal preference. The Oxford Green is gorgeous (I wish my 540 were Oxford or Orient Blue instead of black), but I'm not a fan of the Coupe in dark colors. Mine is Silver/Black (though I'd have loved the Imola interior just to go totally retro.) I was torn between Silver and Estoril Blue, so I bought an Estoril model for my desk. Looks nice next to the Silver Z8. ;)
