    Grr damn tyres & Ta for the Exhaust Help

    My sideways antics last week has put a nice slit in one of my tyres
    Because the tred is low on both sides I'm looking at £77 each for 2 Eagle F1's again only 2 months after I did the front two!

    Meanwhile many thanks to everyones advice on the Stainless vs normal exhaust debate. In the end some hunting got me a SuperSprint back-box for £174 and no postage cos the distributer is 1/2 a mile away
    I went for the stainless in the end because it will be cheaper when the centre pipe fails, gives a little performance boost, lasts longer and looks good to boot.
    It cost £15 to have fitted (only 2hrs before all that snow last week!) and a word of warning here - Many garages with flat refuse to fit a sports exhaust, even if it requires no modding to fit like mine.

    Anyway a pic:

    LOL
    Actually that is the slow puncture tyre and it's got 2.5mm-3 across the width. Normally I wouldn't change both but so close to the edge I'm going to do both and put the one good one on the spare wheel. THAT one is the same age as the car (7yrs!) and although over-endowed with tread it's begining to perish so I'll bin it.

    I visited my parents on Sunday and Dad was washing his. So he didn't stop and did mine! Tiny bit embarrasing but I guess it needed its 6-monthly wash

    That dirt Sir is VINTAGE dirt. Twas from way back when the dust at the Download Festival blew. In fact that's probably seen more than 6000 miles that thur muck and grime. Quality stuff doncha know!
