Sat by the Indian Ocean somewhere in Africa and only 1 day of "work" left .... before returning to Blighty #Bosh

Wow 8 months has really flown by!

Give it a few months and you'll have to sell before the mileage gets too high. Imagine a Porsche with over 25k miles? Near impossible to sell. Very Happy

Yes and it's on the cards, but I may still get the OPC warranty, in which case there are only the dreaded P zeros which are N rated. Dont know

It might be worth checking with your OPC Sponge because I believe there are now N rated Michelins available. I’m pretty sure they were an option when I took out the warranty last year.
