  1. Pretty much yeah. I used a grey scotch pad to key the surface 1st. I then used a de greaser (brake cleaner in my case) to take any surface contamination off them and then used a tac rag (sticky rag) to take off any dust and sprayed them with hycote closs paint. I sold my R 12 months ago and was still going strong. Preparation is key.

    AJ Vs Ruiz

    He knocked out Dillian White. Charles Martin was a terrible champion, but won a belt. Povetkin and Parker were the other noteable fighters. The heavyweight division is poor. Could say the same about Wilder and also Fury. Wilders biggest fight was Fury. Other than that, there's nobody worth mentioning. Fury has fought Klitch and Wilder. Fury is probably the best of the 3 but hes just an epic bellend.

    AJ Vs Ruiz

    Are you a boxing casual? Anybody that knows anything about boxing knows thar Ruiz was no mug. 105 wins in the amateurs. Up until last night had only lost to Parker (He won in my opinion) Ruiz is a much better boxer than AJ, far more technical and a lot better on the inside. AJ and his team knew this! Its was a boxing masterclass in nullifying Ruiz's strengths. Whether you like him or not, he does the business more often than not. AJ would smash Wilder to pieces. Wilder is nicking a living as a boxer, he has 1 punch. Fury proved he was a nobody.

    AJ Vs Ruiz

    Its Usyk next. The IBF have called him to fight before June/July or give up the title. He could be interesting. Unproven at Heavyweight but can definitely do a bit.

    AJ Vs Ruiz

    I dont agree that Fury is a big puncher. Fury's advantage over any heavyweight is his awkwardness. For a big fella he can move. His footwork is next level. Fury isnt unbeatable, hes not brilliant at anything other than movement but his ability to be awkward gets him through.

    225s for me. Members have mentioned 235s on the back but some have said its scrubs on the inner arch with weight in the back. Some have been fine. I just played it safe after reading the original sales booklet on the RS.

    I went with the PS4's because Costco are doing deal that expires tonight on 2 and 4 tyres. £50 off 2 and £100 off 4 if you have a membership. So i got 4 for £432. Theyve transformed the car tbh. I highly recommend them. Obviously i cant account for the other 2 brands but the PS's are excellent.

    Quick update. Had the tyres fitted on Thursday at Costco as planned. £432 for 4 PS4s. Instantly better than the Kumho. Even on fresh rubber the traction was perfect. I had the geo done at Drury Lane Diagnostics, Oldham yesterday (£120) They showed me a before printout and an after. Made a fair few adjustments and it feels like a completely different car. Im not sure if its more of a placebo effect but it judt feels more planted, quieter and the steering feels more direct. I havent give it any welly into corners yet because i dont want to end up in a ditch without running the tyres in 1st. But 1st impressions are rather impressive. Few more tweaks like the anti roll bar and a little freshen up on the front bumper and the car is to my standard and complete.

    It will be my 1st winter with the RS and tbh it has some big shoes to fill. My 6R was brilliant in the snow, even on summer tyres.

    I will indeed. Booked in at 2pm. Might treat myself to a slice of costco pizza too 🤣🤣

    My 6R was unreal. Grey, 19s, DSG and leather. Few other goodies too. Lad down in Wales has got it now. Hes contacted me a few months back from the raft of receipts that came with the car. He sounds well into the old gal, so shes gone to a good home. Would i have her back? I think I would tbh. The car was immaculate. I just fancied 1 last splurge of something special. I had the R 4 years and youd have been hard pressed to find a better one. As for the RS. I had it mapped within weeks of buying it. The stage 2+ R was much much quicker than a standard RS. It felt very flat and uninspiring. I bought it with the intention of doing minimal mods. Got to Awesome to have it mapped and it has a scorpion cat back with 2nd cat deletes that i wasnt aware of. So it managed to do 408 bhp with bucket load of torque. Its insanely quick in a straight line and have had a tickle with a new S5, M140 and few other bits and its wasnt even close. The noise is something else. I cant imagine the sound from outside but inside is insane. Unfortunately though having the big iron block upfront cause a touch of understeer but lightens the arse end up when you drop the anchors and its a wee bit scary. Im hoping some better tyres and the rear anti roll bar mod which is a must on the 8p apparently, sorts it out. The biggest problem with the 8P is its an old chassis. Its 2 years newer than the R but because it was launch on an 03. Its effectively 7 years older in technology. The one thing where the R absolutely trounced the RS is the handling. The R had DCC, the RS doesnt. Even as simple as going over a bumpy road you can really feel the difference. The RS has the DQ500 S tronic. The R had the 250. The ratios are hugely different and the RS has a 7th gear. Went to a VW show in Doncaster in the summer and saw 42mpg with Cruise control on. The R with Stage 2 + mods never got above 30 tbh. Looks wise, the R was a much better looking motor on my opinion. The RS gets a lot of attention i still love the Rs look. The RS does have the upgrade buckets. Pretty uncomfortable really but looks the bol*ocks. Mine also had the exterior alloy pack which makes a huge difference to the look. To summarise its basically pro's and con's to both. I do miss my R and i regret selling but the prestige of the RS badge and that engine was something i had to experience. Itl hold good money too. So i can have my fun and hopefully make most of my money back.

    Thanks for all your helpful comments. Ive gone with the PS4s based on your advice, google and a buddy working at costco (£100 off when buying 4). Interim service today at Awesome and new rubber fitted tomorrow. The RS is getting a bit more to my standard now. Bought her in March. Had the haldex pump and filter changed, Stage 1 Apr, new oem vented brakes and pads and tomorrow tyres. Gonna be looking at a 034 rear anti roll bar to sort the light arse end out and then bumpers painted and shes complete. 8 months in though. Im still reallllly missing my 6R 🙈 The prices for comparable parts from the R to the RS are insane. Audi wanted £890 for a pair of front discs. Luckily i found Cardiff Audi doing a deal on ebay and caught it just at the right time because ebay gave me £50 if i bought them. So managed to get them for £435.

    Evening everyone,This question has probably been asked a million times and id had a go at searching through previous posts but nothing recent or definitive.Whats are you all using? Why? And how do you find them?My RS3 8P has Kumho Ecsta Le sports on and are dreadful. Theyre really starting to struggle for traction in a straight line and particularly cornering. I had the Haldex pump and filter changed in March, so i assume it isnt that and must therefore be the tyre.I believe theyre 235/35/19 front and 225/35/19 on the back. Conti Sport Contact 6 are held in high regard on evo magazine etc and £511 for 4 on Asda tyres. So im thinking maybe these.Any support, opinions and advice would be appreciated.Thanks
