  2. Maximum you can go to without rubbing is 225/40 18, not the 235/40 you mentioned. The handling doesn't alter to unusable, if anything it provides a better compromise as a daily driver with some additional suppleness and the "stretch" is removed from the rim. Also, the cost is greatly reduced. I have pirelli p zeros at the moment in the 225/40 18 and they performed quite well on the skid pan recently and didn't scrub the edges off as expected. And +1 here for driver training as the driver is always the biggest hurdle with a cars performance. There's plenty of fun stuff to be had out there off the street that will improve your skills, get the maximum out of your car and allow you to keep your licence when you're on it [emoji6] Sent from my SM-G975F using Tapatalk
  3. Welcome to the forum! Hope the issues aren't too frustrating.
  4. So you're saying your wife has wind?

  6. +1 for stay in the Meg. I've got the 265 and the clio iv 220 and while it's occasionally handy when feeling like mindless driving, Chuck is right in you still have to drive it thinking like you're in a manual. No creeping like in a torque converter auto, particularly on hills. I get more anxious in traffic in the iv now than in the Meg as I'm smoother and in more direct control in the Meg with the clutch in stop/start. And quality wise, I still find the meg a nicer place to be in. Sent from my SM-G975F using Tapatalk

    They are P plate approved though.... Except the clio iv 220. The Megane GT220 is also P plate approved. The sport with 17" wheels will be cheaper to run with tyres for you. You can put the money you save on tyres towards further driver training so you can use what you've purchased safely. Sent from my SM-G975F using Tapatalk
  8. With a bit of luck, the fan might just need a bit of warmth and dry air. Otherwise, for the money if the history is there it could be a good buy. Sent from my SM-G975F using Tapatalk
  9. Having just gone from the Hankooks to the RE003s, they're similar in the dry but night and day in the wet. The RE003's are like driving on ice in the wet, at any speed. They're hard as nails though so likely I'll have to put up with them for many years now. The Hankooks are pretty good but wear very quickly. Only 10k with 2 track days out of the set on my 265 and 20k out of my wifes daily driver GT220.

    That trophy is one of 2 in Queensland that are written of vehicles, hence the price. Scan down through the ad and you'll see it listed. I'm guessing the floods that went through there last year. If you're not planning to comprehensively insure it, and want to take the risk, go for it. Otherwise, go for the liquid yellow. I'd aim for a phase 2 though at that budget.

  11. Yep, second here for regular on 245/35 19.
  12. Welcome Rick! Good to see you here and it'll be great to hear of Lucy's continuing adventures in the community [emoji16][emoji106] Sent from my SM-G975F using Tapatalk

    Don't forget led globes into halogens.... Pretty sure avoiding the above 3 keeps it drama free [emoji4] Sent from my SM-G975F using Tapatalk
  14. Hi,

    Would you take $500 for the set?

    Cheers

  15. Did some trawling and found the last time we spoke about this one. I just went over and had a peek through the window and can confirm there isn't a second set of pedals in there at the moment. And it's possibly not as dire as I thought regarding the lack of movement. Might only have been since June last year that it hasn't been driven.
