Re: Rear tyres

+ 1 for the Michelins, the stock Pirellis are like driving on slicks on ice..... I think that's a bit of an exaggeration, unless slicks have reasonably good grip on ice. My AWD on Pirellis feels a lot more secure than my previous RWD XKR. The RWD V8s I understand can be a bit of handful on any tyre...

Re: Rusting Discs

I've complained to JLR about this, their response was that all discs do it....which if you have more than an F type you will clearly see that they don't all rust as fast as an f types do.
