    New Tyres

    Made my decision in the end and went with the Dunlop GTs. Had them on a week and have to say first impression are good, grip seems good no extra noise than the Conti's and the overhang rim protection is much better than the Conti's. Also i have not noticed any tramlining unlike the Conti's they...

    New Tyres

    I am leaning towards Dunlops. MAXX SP GT or MAXX SP RT Both around £150 each on mytyres plus £5 per tyre fitting at a local centre. Mate is runnig the GT's but the RTs get better efficiency and grip rating in wet so leaning towards those. I guess only time will tell on the wear wether 8K is...

    New Tyres

    Cheers for the info i will have a look at this. I too notice the tramline issue thought it was just maybe due to size of wheel/tyre.

    New Tyres

    14K half worn, tell me your secret! When i bought the car last year the tyres were near enough brand new and in that year i have done 8K miles and the tyres are almost shot, i'm trying to get as much out of them as i can but i'm not willing to take the risk of them in the wet or being pulled...

    A4 B8 Foglight bulb

    I found it easier to go in through the wheel arch,turn your wheel so you have access and then remove x2 torkscrews from the inner arch lining and then bend it back enough to fit your arm in,the power connecter has a small indent to push to release it from the lamp holder,once this is removed...
