Hear Hear! My left knee is original but knackered. Rugby and driving most of my working life @ 30K a year in manual cars. Just try and work out how many times I depressed the clutch pedal! :o

Re: Tyres/wheels

I always buy new ones on factory order for the same reason, but I try avoiding buying new and opt for demos, to save a few bob. Demos are often top of the range and you can save a few grand.
I have to consider not bruising my pension too much! :lol:
