Report that JS and the council should pay.

I hit a one in my old Volvo and got a bleb in the side wall. Only a Kumho but it was nearly new. Council said buy a new one then they refunded me the £75.

Just done it again the other day. NSF again but tyres are on the tread bars now so I won't bother claiming. I've got exactly 30k miles out of the fronts and the rears (fitted at the same time) are only half worn. Cracking tyres.

NLW - I look forward to your thread update for that little lot. Thumb

PostPosted: Sun Jul 01, 2018 12:22 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

Mine has been treated to the following over the last few weeks.

Major service including plugs, fuel filter, pollen filter, mobil1 etc etc. The oil had covered just 2000 miles but was still changed - only the best for my car...
New Poly V belt.
New brake light switch fitted and coded.
Brake fluid flushed and re-bled (every 12 months on my car for peace of mind)
2 new front wheel bearings and speed sensors fitted.
Ohlins road and track suspension kit fitted, corner weighted and geometry set.

All work undertaken by Fearnsport Thumb

New exhaust as the original was starting to blow, and looking a little shabby. Decided on a Kline as I intend keeping the car for a while. Looks very nice and sounds even better:

Useful Pelican Parts video on YouTube to talk you through it 👍

New Bosch S5 battery fitted over the weekend, I was having weird door window operations, I was going to replace various micro switches but I was also getting plagued by flat batteries, I fully charged the battery at home and the strange window behaviour stopped, only when I removed the trickle charger for a day did the window weirdness come back.

Ghost in the machine.
