    Tyre of choice these days? any brand or type standing out?

    Brilliant mate, thanks for that. I have to agree. I know last time I was in the same boat and the Assy's won me over. I can get them for £184.00 the pair, fitted and balanced, but at F1 Autocentres :/ May hunt around for a mobile place close to that price, last time they forgot to balance...

    Hi all! So about a year later, and I need two more tyres. The Assy 2's have done about 10k miles and still looking like new, the Conti 3's on the back are even closer to the limit than a year ago, were an advise on the MOT and I have a Santa Pod trip and airport run coming up so want to get...

    Thanks Artimus, Yes I know you can make any car spin, my comments were because tonight was the first time I had really driven abnormally since I had them fitted, so was a little dissappointed it didnt grip as I hoped. When I said...give it some...I meant pull away quickly in second gear. I...

    Well ive had my Assy 2's on about a month now, I have really really booted or pushed it in the wet then just tonight, and I must say the roads seem damp and greasy as I went round a roundabout a bit quick and the back slid a little, so when I then gave it some in 2nd on the straight the n/s...

    How did the fitting go with this mate? I got Halfrauds to change a bulb on the misses car last week, as I done the other side last year which was the easier one...it took two of them 35 minutes! Makes the £6.99 worth it, lol

    By any chance does anyone have a photo or could possibly take a photo of their tyre wall with Assy 2's please?! Reason being, when I was searching I noticed some places still doing the Assy 1 about £100 ish and the Assy 2 about £115 ish, so just wanted to make sure I am getting the right ones...

    Emission Control Light on less than 500 miles after injector recall

    They kept telling me they can only advise a dealer on what to do or pay for but I dont think that is the case as have read on here where UK have told dealers to sort it. Yup good idea, how long have you had the car mate? Its a pi55 take the amount of threads about problems after recall there...

    Emission Control Light on less than 500 miles after injector recall

    Andy - I had an brand new inlet manifold on mine, I actually saw it and there were about 2 and 1/2 flaps missing! plus looked all knackered one end...it made no difference what so ever, they did a smoke test and it was leaking for sure but the car and DPF issues were still there, I really do...
