  1. Just an update to the thread. I've been keeping a close eye on the front Michelin's as they are getting close to the wear indicators... Been out today for the weekly check to find some really bad cracking is occurring all round the tires on both fronts !!! This has occurred within a week !!! So it's in for a pair of Dunlop sport max rt2 later today.. A fair price, a very quiet tire at 69db and an A rating for wet and a C rating for fuel. I would have fitted rears at the same time as the accelera ditchfinders whilst relatively new on the rear are horrible but in the next month I've 4 tires to fit on the alltrack Passat before it goes on its summer camping jaunt to the south of France... I will report back on how they fair on the 250c, as the 250c is heavier than the saloon and how quiet they are. Paul. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  2. It's actually pretty disgusting how much they charge to update car inbuilt satnavs. Not just Lexus.. And car satnavs are plain dumb. From Sheffield I put in postcode for Southampton port in my 407 which had up-to-date mapping. Fastest route just for a laugh. I knew the way id go as I'm a HGV driver.. sat nav... M1,m25, etc etc. The fastest way the nav said was over 112 miles further than going down the M1, across the a43, a34..!!! And let's be honest, none come close to Google maps navigation Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  3. That's me f##ked then cause mines got Michelin's that are about done on the front and a pair of accelera Chinese Ditch finders on the rear... I cannot wait to put 4 matching sportmax rt2 on the 250c!!!! Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  4. Lina's. P The issue arises that they are not the factory fit size... It's a real minefield. I remember reading years ago in the news that a women had smashed up her MR2 roadster and because it didn't have the specified Bridgestone potenzas designed for that model the insurance was trying to refuse to pay out. I'd add that in years gone by you used to have to tell the insurance you were fitting winter tires tho these days they don't bother.... Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  5. changing the tire size is a modification. You should notify insurance or risk them not paying out in the event of a crash should the investigator spot the tire size difference. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  6. I suspect it's just not a popular size which is why they are expensive. My old 407 pug on 17 inches was a typical unusual French side thus making the tires more expensive Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  7. Dunlop sportmax rt2 M8. Very quiet. A rated on wet. Evo mag tire of 2018 I will be fitting 4 on the is250c shortly myself. Been looking for weeks. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  8. Best advise M8. Stay away from the diesel.. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  9. To be honest 420 is quite a bargain. Generally speaking, bumper damage works out between 1000-1500. Those are our companies figures. We shift cars for a living on Car transporters. Those huge ones that you see wobbling about with 11 cars on, down the motorway.
  10. Kaminet. How do you get a throaty exhaust, when nothings actually changed ? You've not changed out the cats for sports cats, nor a resonator delete, nor catback system ? Placebo effect M8... In all honesty you should have had the car dyno'd before and then after.. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  11. Since I had the trauma the other weekend with locking the is250c which I suspect was rf interference I've got a issue that I believe I've caused. When I now unlock the is250c, only the drivers door unlocks. Passenger stays locked. Can someone advise me on how to reset the fob/car so both doors unlock please.. Cheers Paul Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  12. I had exactly the same issue Sunday with the is250c. Couldn't lock it or unlock with fob or keyless entry. Now the plot thickens.. 5 of my neighbours are all having issues. 2 houses with wireless house alarms, 1 caravan with wireless alarm. 1 Toyota RAV4, 1 Mazda, 1 Citroen c1/Aygo and a Nissan quashqui and a Nissan van.. 6 households all within 350m having issues... Made some enquires to a very local radio ham to see if he was running on 70cm but he wasn't on. Asked him to keep a log as it looks like ofcom involvement. Thankfully all the neighbours have said we will club together to keep price cheap. Shepherd. Any success in solving this ???
  13. I was wondering about that.. we haven't but I'm going to ask neighbors Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  14. But neighbour car wouldn't lock or unlock without fob touching glass near mirror when he returned home Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
