Guys, Just fitted another pair of new tyres to my B7 spec ed TDi. (235/40/18) The fitters at the tyre place informed me that the Conti Contact Sport 3's are now being produced in a special "R01" batch specifically for Audi's. I wonder if Audi have finally realised that tyre wear is diabolical on the B7 and have released a harder compound? ...or is it just another way to pile on a few extra quid? "Its specifically designed for the Audi sir, that'll be £183 a tyre"!!!!!!!!
