    What you think to the Conti Sport Contact 5's?

    Been looking at them myself or whether to stick with Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymm 2's. And then the third option playing in my mind is to save some pennies and go for the Vredstein Sessanta's.

    LOL, not another tyre discussion. :)

    Very pleased with the Contis but not tried the Goodyears or the Vreds.

    I love my Vred's, a good inexpensive option. Haven't tried many on this car but went through quiearte a few when I had a new 2.0tdi sline cab in 2006-8, and these are at least as good as the Michelins, Goodyears or Dunlops that I tried.

    This year, 4* tyres and a 4 wheel alignment, Mtec discs and pads, 1 front and 1 rear parking sensor, and a standard service, not too bad.
    I've bought some braided brake hoses to go on when the fluid gets changed in the new year. Got a few bits sat waiting to retrofit, autolights and wipers, dimming mirror,and a new bluetooth mic (mines a little noisy).

    18 months now and 20,000 miles and still loving this car. Oh,but, ......damn finding Detailing World, loads of products bought.

    Ok, if you want 2013 spend list you can enjoy mine!....Cause my piggy bank didn't! hehehe

    Car now on 222,000 kms

    MTM stage 1 remap by Dahlbeck Racing Borlange, ( well worth it! )
    RS 19"' alloys repaired & resprayed by Intera, Stockholm ( wish I hadn't.... )
    Window tints ( bargain )
    ABT front lip spoiler re attached ( Feckin snow )
    Black Carbon Fiber 2d wrapped interior trim ( Easy peazy done it myself )
    Wrapped rear light clusters and front wing indicators with mid tint ( Tricky but looks better than oem and cheap diy )
    Zimmermann coated discs and pads all round ( Big Difference )
    T8ups bulbs with Phillips extra side bulbs ( no more jaundice look! )
    New PCV ( Revs were rising at idle and throwing up EML light after remap )
    OEM Cam follower ( old one was in good nick, much to my relief )
    Various belts ad bushes not worth mentioning......oh, a visit to the petrol station every week to say goodbye to about 60 quid!
    3 oil and filter changes ( Anal )!

    Promised to behave myself in 2014 spending wise....but I know it's a waste of time....maybe new Milltek exhaust....and full belt service with new clutch.

    Cheers
