  1. That's the thing with black cars though isn't it, they look fabulous once all the swirls have been done and a good wax polish. I've had two black cars and one weekend a long time ago I set to work on my RX7. With a Meguiars DA polisher and three bottles of Maguiars Ultimate Finish I managed to get it nearly perfect. I then followed it with some Pinnacle Souveran wax it went on like butter and came off with little work. I then entered it into our local Jap Car Club event and won the shiniest car award piston, enclosed is a photo of it that I've kept since 2009.
  2. No they supplied new sensors in the price, I have kept the original wheels and tyres untouched.
  3. Thanks, I'll have to get my thinking cap on and try to understand.
  4. Thanks I've been buggering around for at least an hour looking for it, I'll try again. Found the button not exactly easy to find, problem is I've gone through the procedure and zero nothing registered. So either they are defective or not there.
  5. Well I've tried to find the menu in settings and the button which is said to be located behind the dash but I can't for the life of me find anything.
  6. I agree, although it's done now 265 will be the replacements. It looks like my TPMS refuses to acknowledge the new set up, on the actual tyre pressure screen the pressures are blank then if i drive I get the small tyre inflation symbol flash then stay on. Is there a procedure to 'tune in' the new units? Took this yesterday to give an idea of proportions both disc to wheel and wheel arch gap, still think lips/extensions will be the answer.
  7. You're right they do look a little stretched the fronts are 255/30/20 on a 9.5 rim I ought to do a check to ensure they are okay I'm guessing it was the only size made. The rears are 10.5 with 285/30/20. Just checked on a tyre/wheel site 9-9.5 for the 255 tyre. I'd have thought Delroy would have got it right. Rim width Minimum tyre width Ideal tyre width Maximum tyre width 5,0 Inches 155 mm 165 or 175 mm 185 mm 5,5 Inches 165 mm 175 or 185 mm 195 mm 6,0 Inches 175 mm 185 or 195 mm 205 mm 6,5 Inches 185 mm 195 or 205 mm 215 mm 7,0 Inches 195 mm 205 or 215 mm 225 mm 7,5 Inches 205 mm 215 or 225 mm 235 mm 8,0 Inches 215 mm 225 or 235 mm 245 mm 8,5 Inches 225 mm 235 or 245 mm 255 mm 9,0 Inches 235 mm 245 or 255 mm 265 mm 9,5 Inches 245 mm 255 or 265 mm 275 mm 10,0 Inches 255 mm 265 or 275 mm 285 mm 10,5 Inches 265 mm 275 or 285 mm 295 mm 11,0 Inches 275 mm 285 or 295 mm 305 mm 11,5 Inches 285 mm 295 or 305 mm 315 mm 12,0 Inches 295 mm 305 or 315 mm 325 mm 12,5 Inches 305 mm 315 or 325 mm 335 mm
  8. Took some better photos today, the first one was me trying to be 'arty' and failed playing with the light/shade. Also note the £12 e-bay rear diffuser.
  9. Thanks I've sent off a couple of e-mails to both, although I like the carbon fibre rears that a forum member here is about to sell.
  10. Have you been able to get a space for our F cars?
  11. I agree, and to me the wheel arch gap is as important as rear disc diameter to wheel size, another bee in my bonnet so to speak, as irrational as it may be to some people it's fairly important to me. I have no doubt getting it right in my eyes is probably going to cost way more than it's actually worth but I've started the ball rolling. Just hope the next buyer of my car appreciates what I've done. Many years ago I attended a car show where some American car on show had 22 inch open design wheels and discs the size of tea saucers, I looked at it and started to laugh it wasn't long before other attendees also got the point and laughed too the owner wasn't amused but one hopes he saw the light.
