      One thing that stood out to me was the almost complete lack of advertising. No billboards, no posters, no hoardings - absolutely nothing of a commercial promotional nature.

      Hehe, yeah, "rat fur" isn't too bad a description. :) Although, not exactly cardboard backing, but plastic. Hey, at least that makes it waterproof (ask me how I know :o).

      Oh, and speaking of...

      Cost-cutting isn't the primary motivation behind leaving out spare tyres. Less weight, more interior space, more freedom of design, 50% of owners not knowing how to make use of one anyway...

      As Jay Leno says, wives prefer their husbands to come home smelling of motor oil rather than cheap perfume. :)

      Thanks for the recommendations. :thumbup: I looked up the WR G3 on the Nokian site, but didn't find anything, but then I realised they brand it as the All Weather+ here. Unfortunately, it's only...

      Thanks everyone. Guess I will get some new ones, then. :) :beer:

    9. How long is "too long" to keep using a set of winter tyres?

      I have a spare set of wheels with winter tyres on them (Vredestein Wintrac Xtremes) that I've been using for the past few years.

      I'm trying to decide whether it's worth keeping and using them for...

      This is cool. :thumbup:

      I've been running a similar little CAN-integrated box in my car for a few years now. It takes some of the usual diagnostic info, plus a couple of auxiliary inputs (I have...

      This is actually quite a representative test of how these vans are driven in real life. There's a reason why the 'white van man' stereotype exists. :D

      Oh, and I've driven that circuit on a track...

      Heh, this guy needs to go buy a lottery ticket. :laugh: Who would have thought?

      Not sure if this is helpful, but YouTube gives you the facility to apply a B&W filter to your videos after you've uploaded.

      I would not discount a seized caliper piston just because you can move them manually without trouble.

      Earlier this year I had to replace my front brake calipers because of seizing pistons. I was...

      Earlier this year I drove my car around for a couple of weeks with no carpet, insulation/deadening or back seats due to some ongoing electrical work.

      It was too noisy and too hot, so no thanks. I...

      Does the compressor give any restriction when it's not active? I would have to assume it does, but by how much? It would be interesting to see dyno curves for part-throttle pulls.

      Also, I notice...

      I once spent around 2 weeks driving my boss's 2006 Boxster S, and I came away not being overwhelmingly enthusiastic about it.
