You'll need to get the special VW tyre compressor.

It's a big wheel to inflate so the compressor needs to be able to run for about 10 minutes and from the terminals in the engine compartment, NOT the cigarette lighter as someone kindly pointed out to me.

Have you asked the price at the dealer?

I was very surprised at how cheap my BMW space saver wheel and tyre was a while back.
