Just try not to melt the tyres on your new one!
;)
Haha! Hi PhilB, I didn't know you were in here too :D

I will drive my F-Type very, very sedately, honest!
Fair enough until you get used to its feel - be sure to give it the odd ragging after though - it would be rude not to :D

..and the sooner you'll be able to swap the Pirellis from some Pilot Sport 4S ;)
Definitely!!

Why not try to trade them in [new..] before taking delivery ? Asking doesn't cost you.. ... the Michelins SS4 will be a bit dearer,
but from all sides we've been told its another car with these tires... ... better take off on the 'right footing' from the start.. ;)

To be fair, even driving it "sedately" will see off most other cars! ;)

I'll ask, though the car has already been built and the tyres have already been driven on, albeit only 6 miles so far.

I wouldn't mind keeping the P Zeros for now and swapping at a later date. It would be good to see the difference. I've got an XE-S at the moment and that's always had P Zeros.

Hi there, I did some tracksessions on the circuit of zolder(Belgium) last week and actually I am quit happy with the P-zero tires.
the brakes however were really underpowered.
So be glad the s-model has the 380mm discs.
the right tyrepressure is really important!


Wish you a lot of fun with your new f-type and safe driving.

Corne,

You did buy your car used, or am I mistaken ? With more then 30.000km on the clock, yours aren't OEM!

Probably the previous owner replaced them and the aftermarket are a different story all together it seems.
