Our salesman say's the full size spare will come with a tyre to match those on the alloys!
That being the case at £50 its a bargain! Even if it gets stuck in the garage! (my wife will be using the car to get to work 15 miles each way)

does anyone know where the full size spare is located on the up? because the boot just doesnt seem big enough to have it in there anywhere like my polo's spare is under all the boot carpet?

I have a 'Take up!' without a spare wheel. Checked the boot and the wheel area is below the boot floor. I have the pressurised rubber solution in a can BUT there is NO jack !!

I emailed the dealer and they say that with the run flat pressurised sealer they do not supply a jack ! Strange as our Honda Jazz and new Mini both had pressurised cans AND car jacks. You need a jack to rotate the tyres and handle wheel removals for inspection etc.

Dealer has quoted £27.36 for a jack.

It's where you expect a find a spare on a normal car and you get the tools you need with the tyre (according to my dealer)

I have a spare wheel in my UP! and it comes with the jack so do not worry. It is located beneath the lower level of the boot so you do not loose any space at all. It is a very neat.

I think £50 to get tools, jack and a spare wheel is a no brainer as an accessory. If you use the foam, the tyre cannot be repaired.
