  1. That's a useful link, thanks!. I did indeed go nuts trying to find the right fittings for new wheels for my gen 5 here in France. I could have done with the link a few weeks ago. In the end I looked at pro furbishment of exisitng wheels (which I bought some years ago from a club member) which was far too expensive so I went for an interim solution of rubbing down and respraying at home. Way from perfect but looks ok and protects the wheels in he meantime. Anyone used the trick of stacking up playing cards around the rim as a means of msking the tyre? Looks like a big flower and works -
  2. Here on France nearly all 95 is now E10 as opposed to E5. I try to stick to E5 if I can find it, otherwise 98 - the price difference is minimal. Mines an early Gen 5 from 1991

  9. I generally get around 30 - 32 in my 5 but last weekend managed nearly 36 to the gallon on a long trip on motorways. I was impressed.

  11. Is that true? If so it is quite likely I have the only blue one in France .....

  13. The original pre facelif Gen 5 had 14 inch wheels at 205x60. I have just taken them off my car because I couldnt get a choice of tyres at that size (and certainly none V rated as my MOT insisted). However I found some reasonable Falken tyres at this size which I used prior to changing the wheels. I have the full set of old wheels and tyres sitting in the garage but not much help to you as I am not very close (!) Gareth
  14. I was on Falken ZE 912s but with different wheels now have the Continentals. They have really changed the feel of the car for the better and it reminds me of my go kart days - turn the wheel and the car just seems to follow .... strange to explain. Mind you the write ups for wear are not that good for these tyres - I guess the compound mix is good for gripping (soft?) but t poor for wear . Gareth
  15. Happy Anniversary gareth123!
