    Just arrived in the highlands for my week away. On the b roads the Jaffa keeps bottoming out on the bumps. Pissing me off. The Tdi never did it much and that was lowered.
    WTF is going on with it ?

    Wheels are 8x18et 45. I had the same ones on the Tdi. I can't remember if I had 235 or 225 on the tdi as I have 235 on at the mo.
