    Default I know I'm right, just confirm for me..

    Signum Elite 3.0 V6 CDTi on 18's, should be running 225/45/18's with a 94 or 95 weight rating.

    The one I'm keen on has 91's which are wrong.

    And they're Federals. Where the hell did they come from!?

    Plus the cars done 12000 miles, surely the tyres last a bit longer than that!

    I would have thought that at 12,000 miles it should still be on the 1st set.
    Mine's nearly done 11k, and it's been driven quite hard, but it's not close to needing any yet.

    Sounds a bit suspicious to be honest, would have expected it to be on the usual VX suspects at that mileage.

    I'm not sure on the 91 rating for 18's but its borderline for the 17's - 215-50-17.

    Maybe it wasn't standard on 18's from the factory and they have come from a car that has done a lot more miles? or maybe he bought the wheels and tyres seperately. Some of the budget tyres don't last that long.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    It's an ex demo, then private owner. The rears look to be the original Bridgestones, with a reasonable amount of meat left on them. They are the 95's.

    Car is loaded, AFL, Bluetooth, Parking sensors, 18's, Colour sat nav etc....

    Only thing I'm not overly sure about is the colour - Star Silver. I really wanted a dark colour, but must admit, I was very surprised how much I liked it in the metal.

    Just waiting for him to come back to me with an improved price and offer for my car!

    Oh, and it's not on a VX dealer forecourt, Network Q my ar$e, it's an independant, I'm not too sure he realises what it is he's got there.

    Comes with a 3 year AA warranty too....

    I am seriously tempted, like I say, the deal needs a bit of sweetening before I jump.

    That's what I thought. I did point it out to the garage owner, he was actually quite concerned about it to be fair.
