  1. Exactly 👍 One of My local Tyre fitting/suppliers were Taken a back when I answered his statement of “ we’ve a load of excellent winters just come in at £30 fitted for your size “ 🤔🤨 I wouldn’t have those fitted if they were free and My conti 5 on 5mm will do a better job thanks. They were half budget god knows who I’d never heard of , all at 3-4mm and they were selling like hot cakes. Major RTA waiting to happen as some unsespecting customers will think they have all the grip in the world now and ready for winter 🤨 Theyre leathal in the wrong situation especially come summer time when these customers are running them to the legal limit. but then again 90% of them couldn’t care less until there hedge bound backwards..these tyres should be destroyed in the country of origin but the good old Brits love um 😳
  2. Probably why we’re seeing a wave of half worn winter tyres coming through in the uk as regular part worn A grade.
  3. rubish 😂 She would love them with oak boards on top making a stylish coffee table or even smoked glass 🤔🤣
  4. An insulated microfiber bag would be excellent for cold garage &shed storage or bring them in the house coffee table style like a mate of mine has in his flat.😳😊
  5. No worries bud. The R is fantastic VFM in performance cars and hard to match for its all weather ability and do everything well nature. so pound for pounds it’s at the top of its game in VFM terms.👍
  6. Thanks bud yes VFM is paramount in cars . Luckily I only lost 2k in a year on the Diesel S and 12k over 2 years on the Turbo and covered 42 k miles between them. When the Mac’s were first out on sale they held they’re money better than anything else on the market. I lost the same amount on an R if I’d kept it to near 3 years and similar mileage 🤗even with A healthy discount so excellent VFM if you buy at the right time. And Porsche didn’t discount so it was retail and wait for it 😬🙄
  7. Haha.. alas not anymore these days bud.😬 I’ve been lucky enough to of driven all the later models and they are amazing. I always wanted to own a Porsche Turbo from a lad and set My sights on a brand new one but only managed a Turbo Macan because of a cross between family commitments and the love of all things 4wd. Back in 2014 I took delivery of a good spec Macan S Diesel while A deposit was down on a 15 plate Mac Turbo with near all options ticked 🤭🤗 she was a blast and had only one mod a cobb ecu tunning device that released 150+hp so was a real blast for a medium SUV. I was later offered a 62 plate Turbo S 991 straight swop for it by My dealership but the wife swayed the decision towards the family SUV and I only regret it slightly 🤔🤭😳 They are a fantastic product and I’d have one again over any other marq because of the sheer VFM.
  8. Thanks Ian 👍 yes quite a bit of feet up now in between hobbies so it’s going great and enjoying the retirement as much as possible. Glad you’re well and busy and I’m glad you’re on your hols soon after all your hard work. Enjoy bud 🤗 you’ve earned it 🏄‍♂️🏝⛱
  9. Gosh My Porsche dealer charges £60 twice a year and free storage and they swop them over for you in the price so £120 per annum. but you have to outlay a substantial amount buying one 😉🤨
  10. hi bud.. I know they may take up room but the way you’re stacking them is the best way to preserve them. If Just tyres then a rack vertically is better as there’s no added wheel weight to deform the tyres but for wheels with tyres fitted the advice I’ve read by the experts and tyre producers is stack them as your doing already. hope you’re well and busy bud 👍
  11. Many thanks mate. I may take you up on that as Our daughter is now resident in Liverpool full time and we thought after seeing her one week next year we may take a road trip up to the lovely Scotland but not when the midges are about 🤬 Hopefully we’ll pop in to see you for beans on toast on our way 👍 don’t worry I’ll cook um 😶🤣 Top man 👍
  12. 😂🤣 no worries bud. My other rims I sold to Dave Madspurs were fitted F1 style here at home as he was passing on his annual trip into wales on a road trip. 😊 so getting them on for you would of been a pleasure bud. and My coffee ☕️ ☕️ ‘S are free as well 👍 no worries 😉
  13. No it won’t flag anything I switched mine off twice on my 17 R for service time. You can either remove it or switch it off as it’s easily hidden in the small cubby below the steering wheel.
  14. And don’t forget to mention this forum for a discount I paid £189 for the pedal box plus.
  15. No worries OP. The pedal box fits on the end of the accelerator pedal electronics to enable a torque request a lot earlier than is programmed via the ECU or such (I’m no tech) but it works a treat and gives the DSG a shake up a bit in My experience. Not as much as a TCU map but it engages quickly with the device. missing mine a lot.
