Should there be anything next to the battery?

Just picked up my car and am in the process of checking out all the unique things. First thing was realizing that instead of a spare tire I have a battery

When I flip up the cover in the trunk all that is in there is the battery on the right side. There is a compartment on the left side with some screw mounting holes in it but nothing is there. There is also a tool of some sort in a bag with the battery. Am I missing anything?

Okay cool.. I looked at the little tool bag and it looks like it just has a screwdriver and a tow hook in it. I guess there is no other type of toolkit with the car? Not even a tire wrench? Guess with run flats they figure the only tools you need are the ones at the tire place you drive the car too!

yeah, it's prety lame. When I first got mine I actually google imaged pictures of the trunk to see what should be there haha.

There are some things you can get to put there like a toolkit and a portable air pump and tire slime/leak stop stuff. a bunch of folks around here suggest that kinda stuff.

I just keep a toolkit in there.

Although, they are good to throw if you have a flat in the middle of nowhere...

I was reading the manual and it mentioned a "vehicle toolkit". Is that somewhere else? Specifically it was talking about an allen wrench for manually opening or closing the moonroof but I don't see that in the little kit in the trunk with just a screw driver and tow hook.
