Re: Front tyre choice for V6S

Quick pic of the Pirelli Performance Centre. They only take one booking an hour so only ever one car in at a time. Two people work on the car, no machine guns all done by hand.

Hunter 4 wheel alignment and tyre depths all measured automatically as you drive in.

Re: Front tyre choice for V6S

I needed two new rears in March. The fronts still had 4.5mm so went with another set of P-Zero to keep them all the same. The difference in arriving on one illegal tyre and one at 1.7mm and leaving with a new set 8mm was amazing. Such a difference. And that's the issue with a lot of normal driving r...

Re: Coolant top up - more than expected, potential issue?

From empty I think the V6 takes 9.5 litres to fill. (60% water and 40% coolant) So you've lost 15% ish.

Re: Hello, and anyone got a buyers guide please?

The V6 does tap at cold start. As long as it fades as it warms and stops ticking after about 2 or 3 minutes it is completely normal. I forget the technical explanation but it's something to do with it not having hydraulic lifters or something. The full technical answer is on this forum somewhere. Fo...

Re: Happy Fathers Day Dads

I got one of these.

I'm not sure my kids quite get it. But it's a nice t-shirt to be fair!

Re: Can't get it fixed!

Sounds like a complete nightmare. Really feel for you. Dare I ask which dealer the car is at?

Sales - Buy back price is equally appalling.
