No luck :( It's seems to be really hard to find suitable 17" space saver for Kadjar.

This is how the second hand jack and a 16" mini spare from a scrapped Qashqai look like when placed in my Kadjar with the Bose subwoofer:

The fastening rod was too short, so I made a longer one from a M8 threaded rod, a large washer and a M8 wing nut.

The lower mat eventually formed itself after the elevated subwoofer.

There are still room for small things here, especially at the rear sides:

Both upper shelves remain in the correct position.

And finally the optional rubber mat on top.

Ok, so the subwoofer reaches the rim bottom and not the edge and that's why it's elevated? So the rim isn't deep enought for the subwoofer? Am I right? So 17" rim wouldn't help because the rim's depth is still same as 16"? Or is it sticking on the rim edges and that's why isn't going deep enough?

I just removed the inner circular foam that held the subwoofer and the inserts it look like this:

Do you have the Bose subwoofer?

Don't your foam inserts look like that?

Koleos 17" space saver wheel results.

As it looked before

As it looks in the well. The subwoofer fits in perfectly and no need for an extension bolt to secure it down.Result!

Just to check it fits on the hub ok? The centre bore is exactly right and the scooped design means it doesn't interfere with the brake callipers(so no need for shims).The original KJ nuts all sit properly.Even took it for a spin round the block to satisfy myself.

The sub woofer doesn't sit any noticeably prouder than it did before .So you still have that space in the lower compartment for all your bits and pieces.

Everything back in,and my rubberised boot liner with lip in place.Also scored off eBay.

Just one note of caution if your going to use the provided wheel brace.Put some tape round it otherwise it scratches hell out of whatever coating they use on the alloys by the nuts.Better still you can get plastic coated wheel nut sockets and an extender bar.(as in the picture)...If like me you find a standard wheel brace doesn't provide enough leverage on an over tightened nut.

Total cost £80 delivered (second hand with a new tyre on it)

A big thanks to Ballantine, for doing the research on compatible bore sizes etc.

I believe the QQ+2 had a 17" space saver so you might find one of those floating about if your lucky.

Oh ,and I could hear no discernible difference in the acoustics.
