    How did the 255 wear? Many miles?

    Good price there bet the diffrence is night and day?

    Your car sorted now, seam to remember you saying it spent more time at dealers than at home?

    Cheers.

    Yeah it's all sorted.. Just went in for a new transfer box, then fuel pump, then brakes, then door alignment! Why they couldn't manage to do it all at the same time is beyond me!
    and there's a video here of the wear http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/rs3-forum/198334-front-tyre-wear.html

    I've actually just managed to source some genuine fronts in the standard size so I can run either r888's, pilot sport cups, or Dunlop sportmaxx race next summer.... As they don't do any of them in the 255/30... Oh the irony of the optional "handling upgrade" 255's :laugh:
