Re: European Aventure

I always have a couple of boxes. That way I can check myself next morning. After all they have a lot of wine in France and it would be rude not to try it.

Re: New Maps

Done the latest upgrade and for the first time ever have found a new road. It on the new estate next to mine. Estate is only 12 months old. So I found that slightly reassuring.

Re: So what tyres are we all using?

Goodyear 4 season.. Looks like around 25000 miles will be the mileage out of the. I can live with that!

Re: Handling issues after tyre change

Confused. How are you going to change from 17" to 16" without changing rims? I totally agree different tyres on the same axle is not good.
