A303, M3, A272, A283, A27, A259 if you want a slightly more scenic route :y

Almost a straight line too...
Actually scratch that... Your route saves two hours and 30 miles, both of which are a surprise  :o

It goes almost past my front door, too, in which case I'll WFH, put the kettle on and cost even more time. ;)
Great idea  :y but we want to get over the channel and away from Calais before dark.
If it's as much of a shithole as I remember, darkness improves it no end... ::)

No need to overthink it ;)

If I didn't swap tyres would that be ok?
No. It will handle differently and the speedo will be well off...

Not to mention that using tyres which aren't type approved will invalidate your insurance.

All assuming they don't rub...

It was a Vectra I believe did take photo of wheel but how to add here?
B or C? B definitely won't fit... C see my previous post.

VAG have some horrific colours in their current lineup...

They also have a super green (Skoda CitiGO/VW Up), Kiwi Green, that is in the running for a Cobra colour..
You really should paint that Citrine Yellow* or Sublime Green :D

*This looked a lot more fluorescent on the example in the showroom at Grays of Guildford when I did my work experience there in '94 aka when Tunnie was in training pants... ::)

An Sri what? ::)

Wheels might bolt on, but offset is almost certainly wrong and will probably rub once the correct, Omega sized, tyres are fitted.

Aaand they've had another defection!  ;D  Joan Ryan MP for Enfield North.

Thought for the day.

Yesterday the Labour Party lost Luciana Berger, but gained Derek Hatton!  :)
Three Tories have joined them just now. Eleven and counting.

All the fault of JRM and the ERG.......apparently. ::) ::)
I blame Brexit...

Runs and hides :D

No, I meant that it would not have been so time-saving if lots of others had also had that utility.

Ron.

Google maps only works because lots of other drivers along the various routes are being stalked by their phones contributing.
I believe you can stop that by wearing a tin foil hat.
How is that working out for you? ::)

That dark bronzy purple pearlescent is going to look the dog's goolies in some lights and complete toilet* in others, but it isn't russet, which is a far more traditional '70s colour :D

I think the ML looks a bit off because it looks like they chopped the back of the GL... shared platform from the C pillar forwards. (of course I may have that backwards in that the ML was designed and the GL had a shed bolted on the back ::))

Good choice though 8) Still made in Tuscaloosa?

*A layer of British winter and it will look like a mouldy aubergine. Keep it shiny ;)

I trust you have seen the light and  changed from the fuel of Satan to God's own fuel. :)

It's worse than that .... it needs pig piss too  ;D
Try not to get it on your clothes... It stinks :D

Half a job Bob  :D

You'll get it sorted in the end, and even at 25 mph, you'll feel the improvement  :y
