    Default Best mod so far

    Busy week last week had a few jobs done. Rear tyres were shot due to poor allignment so went in for a full geometry set up. Got it done for a bargain £20 and a couple of steaks (i'm a butcher). From there up the road to my local tyre firm for 4 new tyres. 4 19" Kumho's fitted for £308, well happy with this as he quoted me £95 a corner originally and more over it saved me the hassle of ordering online then having to find someone to fit them. I've slated the Kumho's for their noise in the past but that was due to my car not the tyres so happy to buy another set. Finally the best job of the week, new brakes. Bought a 314mm set up off Duncan which can only be descibed as new really, these came off a Saab but went on no problem.
    What i had on..


    Just to show the difference in caliper sizes




    Bigger discs obviously




    and finally fully fitted



    I did have one issue with fitting these and had to get the AA out, due to the increase in size they were catching on the dust cover and making one hell of a racket. It didnt do it at first but i could hear it on the motorway and when i came off it sounded awful. Took the aa guy 30 seconds to fix, how stupid did i feel!!
    Anway the brakes are bedded in nicely now and offer a massive improvement over the 285's, i cant recommend them highly enough. Just like to add by saying thanks alot to Duncan for this set up and getting it to me in the first place, you sir are a diamond.

    They sure do mate, i never realised just how much bigger this set up would look but it fills the 19's out beautifully now. Just need to get time to get them painted, going gloss black with silver decals i think. Thanks for all the comments guys and if you get the chance buy a set they're great!
