The links just go to the slime website doesn't so which product everyone chose.
Went down to Autobarn and saw these two models.

Option A : Link
Option B: Link
Option C: Link

Price wise Option A was $45 and Option B was $85 at autoabarn.

My questions are what did you guys choose ?
Is option B only all it one can't use the pump on its own ?

Cheers Fellas keen for feedback before ordering one.
I have option B. It comes with slime and compressor, all you need for a simple puncture. No plugs though. Fits snugly into the netted compartment of the boot on the right. I hope I never have to use it though I do feel more comfortable with it cruising around. I just feel like it may not be up to the task? I'm sure you already know, but it only works for certain types of punctures... and within a certain size also. There was a thread somewhere how a guy tried to slime fix his tyre, but because the puncture was a little bit big, the slime leaked out from the tyre all over the road, pictures and all.

I have been looking around for an actual spare tyre - that's like a guarantee! A bit more expensive than slime though... So I punctured my tyre within 3 months of owning the car, but haven't had a puncture since for the last 2 and a half years. Just paranoid after the first event.
