Repairable?

Well, the answer was no, I needed a new tyre..

I called round a few tyre places and could have got one for £159 fitted, but as the car was at the dealers and they said £172 fitted, I got them to do it.

Interested on the comment above, about the tyres being quite thin, maybe punctures are going to be a thing with the Born, really hope not :-(
Was that another Cont 6 Conti-seal for £159 at other places? I looked at all the usual big websites like black circles and a few local tyre places. Plenty of other choices, but not the Conti at all but 1 place, and they wanted £192.

A guy with the username "Tooks" on the ID3 forum went through 3 punctured 19" tyres on his ID3 over 18 months.

Yes, it was for the correct Conti-Seal 205/50 R19 93T for the V2..

That quote came from a local independent tyre place who I have used many times, but although they give you an appointment time, you still need time on your hands as very busy !!

I've had a similar puncture a few months ago and got it repaired. Granted, it was a bit more to the centre of the tyre but it was repairable. I was told by the dealer (and the tyre shop) that the conti seal is not supposed to allow you to remove the source of the puncture and keep going but rather to seal it enough to buy enough time and miles to get the tyre repaired.

I’ve just had a screw in the middle of the tread that caused a complete deflation. Took the screw out and the magic goo inside has fully resealed the tyre, has held pressure fully for a week now.

I would still advise you to have the tyre checked at a tyre shop.
