Had four Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tyres fitted, managed to get a set brand new off ebay for £300, fitted locally for £40  :cool:

Fantastic tyres, today is a wet day and even with APR stage 1 and a pedal box cranked up they didn't spin at all under hard acceleration. Very happy!

I bought it on eBay for£12.99 from Hong Kong but that listing has now ended. There are others on there but they are a bit dearer  :sad:

My dashcam is hardwired in and even though I had my battery die last year which I suppose possibly could have been connected, the battery was replaced under warranty with no quibbling and the dealership are fully aware I have a wired-in dashcam.

Mine is left in-situ 24/7 so that parking mode can do its thing. An incident last Sunday, where someone put a dent in my car whilst it was parked up, has shown how worthwhile a dashcam is.

This is what my dashcam caught whilst it was parked up.

Apologies for linking to another forum! 


Following on from the above, picked up the car from the bodyshop this evening.

Front offside wing all repaired and a top job by the bodyshop. And not washed as instructed.  Two nearside Prets refurbed whilst it was off the road, and as always, superb work by Lepsons.

Few pics (in failing light)












Glad to hand this back to credit hire company after a week in it. Not my cup of tea!

Looks great Rebecca. Knowing of a body shop with a good reputation that you can trust counts for a lot.

Any luck in catching the perpetrator that caused the damage? I saw your dash cam coverage over on vwroc.com of the incident, and the guilty party trying to rub out the damage with his finger!

Changed wheels front to back today and gave the wheels and calipers a good clean followed by Platinum Wheels ceramic coat. Hopefully should be nice and easy to clean from now on.

Looking very smart there Jim :smiley: I need to rotate my wheels too, got just over 10k miles on my set of PS4S now so need to get the fronts on the rear. Hopefully, weather permitting, this Thursday. Also need to speak to my insurer about a new turbo elbow and inlet pipe, might not do that much but it's a want over need :smiley:
