    Fresh Tyres

    Hi Gareth, Cheers for the reply. I hopefully shouldn't actually need wheel alignment, however I do want to check that my wheels are properly aligned as they should be. I don't really have any irregular wear, however I do think it's worth checking just to see everything's okay. If not then of course I'll pay for tracking. Very unlikely scenario, though. And don't you worry, I only use a trusted garage I've been going back to for years.

    With the higher pressure, do you see an improvement in fuel economy? They *sound* like pretty good tyres to me anyway. The tramlining with the P Zeros sound a little bit annoying, not something you want when going at high speeds. I'll also be paying for wheel tracking when I get my next set of tyres too, I think. Need to make sure the wheels are aligned as they should be! Thanks for the response anyway matey, I'll take your words into account in buying some new rubber.

    Fresh Tyres

    Hey mate, thanks for the response. Michelin Pilot Sport 4s look good too, I've heard from a friend that they're excellent quality, not to mention the rave reviews on them. What's your take on the Goodyears you currently run? Do you mean the f1 asymmetric 3s? They seem to have excellent wet grip and dry grip from what I've seen doing a quick Google search just now.

    Also, just thought I'd add: looks like the Pilot Sport Cup 2245/30R20 90Y are Audi OEM-manufactured. Do we have a winner?

    Fresh Tyres

    Hello boys and girls. Looking for a fresh couple of wheels for the ol' girl. I've had a browse on a few other car forums to see where other people are buying from, and I saw a little something about ASDA tyres so I thought I'd have a look myself. I was shown these tyres from typing in my reg: https://www.asdatyres.co.uk/245-30-20?range=premium Now obviously I'll be looking for something in the premium price bracket, no questions asked. I was leaning towards the Pirelli P Zero245/30R20 90Ys, but before I make a buying decision I thought I'd ask for you fellas' opinions. Any advice on these/better tyres elsewhere on the internet? Looking forward to hearing what you guys come up with in response to this.

    How was your day?

    Woke up bright and early on my day off, made me & the mrs a good old fry up before she went to work then had a nice relaxing morning. Later on I hit the gym after which I went on some epic drives around my local country roads, and got back just in time to pick the nephew up from a uni visit he was doing with college. Fair to say his mates were impressed with the R8... can't blame them really 🤣 Oh, and the day's not even over! Even better. How was everyone else's day?

    Welcome to the forum mate, the A4 is a stunner in those photos 😉 Glad you're enjoying it.
  8. There you go mate, I'm a little late on this but have filled one in for you anyway. Hope it helps! Good luck with the dissertation buddy. 🙂

    Dash Cams?

    So, just as a little update, I did some more searching around and ended up splashing out on the best possible dash cam I could find. I had a look at some Mio dash cams which look excellent but I don't really need the sat nav feature, so I decided to stick with Thinkware. Expensive little piece of kit but well worth the money. Funnily enough I found the RAC has a shop which sells them - weird, but a decent price. https://www.racshop.co.uk/thinkware-f800-dash-cam.html I'll post an update to this thread should this F800 fail to satisfy my needs, but it doesn't seem likely. Never felt safer on the roads! Thanks for the responses fellas, much appreciated. Scott.

    Indicators...

    It's a shame we don't live in a world where it's seen as "macho" and "cool" to follow what we've been taught and to follow the rules of driving in order to ensure both our own safety and the safety of those around us when sharing the roads at dangerously high speeds... Oh well. I'm thinking about moving to a little island and enforcing my own driving laws, as well as making not indicating and tailgating punishable by execution. What's more macho than not indicating? Beheading those who don't indicate! 🙂😉🙂 Cheers for the reply Gareth.

    Indicators...

    Around my area it seems me and a handful of other drivers are the only people who use them! Have they stopped teaching people how to use them in driving lessons or something?? Seems so.

    Indicators...

    ...Are these magical things on your car to INDICATE to other drivers which direction you intend to drive. Honestly -- is it illegal to not indicate? Do any police on here ever book anyone for not indicating? I'm SICK to DEATH. I was very very nearly involved in a collision over the weekend due to some careless "driver" failing to properly indicate. I'm very lucky that I was able to react in time and am also lucky have a dash cam in case a situation like this ever actually turns into a crash. Some people really do take the fun out of driving. If it were on old driver or new driver in my position I assure you all this would have been a very nasty crash.

    Dash Cams?

    Hi Piotr, cheers for the response mate. Has it really lasted you that long? That sounds way better than what I'd expected. If you've ever owned any other dash cams, how does it compare? Cheers, Scott.

    Houston we have a problem

    Glad to see it's all been sorted for you Marty. £30 is great as well - knew it would be a relatively cheap fix. I'll be looking forward to seeing a mod thread from you once you get started no that. 😉
