The AA use those kits as a get you home fix. The foam is ok but your tyre will be condemned when you go to the tyre repairers because with all the gunk in it they can't or won't repair it.

Some will. The gunk does nothing to ruin a tyre, it just needs to be washed out which takes time & effort they can't be bothered to do for the price of a puncture repair.

Hi there, I have a 3.5 mx5, where can I get a space saver wheel? Somebody has said the wheel from a Hyundai coupe, but they don't make them anymore, so if you could point me in the right direction to get one, I would be obliged

The tyre depot local to work will rinse it for you but they actually recommended using Halfords foam as it works well and will wash out.
