    No, not a chance basically. The Signum (and estate) wheel well is shallower than the hatch or saloon - it won't even take a normal 17" wheel as a spare!!

    You can achieve anything with an angle grinder and an Oxy Torch though!!

    O well. So what would you suggest as a spare if your useing 19"wheels. Don't like the idea of useing the skinny thing that i have at the moment.

    You either have to live with the spacesaver, or put a normal wheel in but put up with the boot base sitting higher up on top. Neither ideal really!

    You coold always get a piece of MDF measured up and raise the boot floor slightly to make sure there was no Wheel shape in the carpet, Obviously cut the hole for the spare wheel, you could even make it so the wheel is covered by the cut out bit of MDF, and put a small flatish handle on it so you can lift the lid off to expose your spare wheel..

    but you'd have to scrap the lashdown points in the floor....as the bolt down through the carpet..and the 3 other fixings up the 'front' of the boot....

    Can't deepen the wheelwell either, as it's dead tight to the exhausts..
