    Should I ditch RFT’s

    I've removed the RFT's and much happier with it, options are buy the space saver tyre or the pump-in Sealant (I went with the Airman Sealant)
  10. I fancy doing this, anyone done it and offer help near Tamworth B79 Earl Shilton LE9 ?
  11. Has anybody successfully coded the stop / start to be default off...? I'm not a fan of continuously turning the engine on and off and would be nice to do.

    New tyres advice please - front only.

    Just fitted Goodyear Asymmetric 3's and very happy with them. Quiet and grippy in wet (None run flats)

    I purchased the below Airman unit this week and have removed runflats very pleased with the extra smoothness the car has https://www.airman-uk.com/product/resq-tech-tyre-repair-kit/

    Possible rear wheel bearing failure

    After bearing replacement, have also now replaced the rear tyres with the Goodyear asymmetric 3 (none run flats) and the rear is so quiet, lovely car to drive when running correctly. New tyres for the front next month to remove the run flats completely
