The emergency inflator supplied with my Life was not suitable for regular use, said my Dealer.

I know it’s not the answer but has anyone queried this with VW? Is the tyre inflator fit for purpose? Maybe they would say take the front wheel off and take it to the back of the car?

VW don't supply an inflator, everyone who has replied about having one will have their own (including me with my foot pump!)
Am I missing something here? There is a tyre inflator in my ID3 boot. To use when you get a puncture along with the goo.
18" wheel owners get one, with the bottle of gunk, not sure if 19/20" wheels with self sealing tyres get one.

No. One or the other.

Noticed in the latest brochure that the East Derry wheels supposedly come with self sealing tyres now but not the steel wheels. Not sure if this is another mistake in the brochure or not. Time will tell.

19/20" self-sealers don't get the gunk can iirc. I'm not expecting one as standard with our Tour.

I didn't mean for regular use. You still have to pump up a punctured / repaired with goo, tyre.
