With 13500 Miles now on the clock it was time to ditch the Bridgestone's and wow i wish i had done it sooner.

Went for the Goodyear Asymmetic 6  225/40/18 92y after checking out some reviews and they are 👍👍👍

The price was quite attractive as well at £328.77 for 4 inc fitting at National Tyres.

There is a standard 15% when you buy 4 but in the apply discount code box there is a 20% code you can add.

Good deal on those GY ASY6.

Car looks very shiny and almost wet, stunning when clean!

Fitted some new discs and pads to the rear today, certainly got my monies worth out of the old ones

Thinking of doing a resonator delete to go along with my TCR backbox, anyone here done similar? Will I regret my decision?

Well screen lit up like a Christmas tree, the usual auto hold, ABS, Stability Control so scanned and needs a rear left wheel speed sensor. Also noticed the rear right brake disk was very hot. Just stripped it down and lubed everything hoping to free it off but the caliper is seized so need a new one of them as well.

To top things off I have yet another coolant leak from somewhere under the alternator. The water pump housing thank god is dry as a bone. Only a slow one but annoying.

Just a thought…..have you checked wheel bearing?
Bearing went on my son’s A3 and it cooked the ABS speed sensor on that wheel.
