Failed to actually sell it... That's to say the oppsing ladybitsing Onanist who won it has, unsurprisingly, failed to turn up for it/say they have changed their minds >:(
Well, did you really expect any different?

Plus I was already at Costco and they were doing PS4s for 103 corner, with 20 vouchers back for each 2 fitted.
Not in 275/35/20 they ain't :(

In fact the quotes I got from Costco weren't competitive, which I was slightly surprised at.

If you park any Omega for more than a week without disconnecting the battery*, expect to have to jump it.

But, do this more than four or five times, and you can expect to be buying a new battery.

* The caveat is to be sure that the key works in the driver's door lock and do not double lock it with the remote...
Most Standard Elites can easily withstand 3-4 weeks if all is in good working order, and the power sounder is in the bin. Lesser models should be a little bit better.

Nope, this was standard Omega 17s. Given Kumhos were ~76 corner. Thought PS4s good value.

Got a VW, Audi, Skoda or Seat? I have full Diagnostic software VCDS to read and program your car. Need something enabling? Perhaps full diagnostic? Drop me a PM. Can diagnose in Camberley or Osterley Area.

I rate the PS4 on the Omega. Not the quietest, but decent grip.  But like any soft tyre, you won't be getting 100,000 miles out of a set.

I like them enough to just buy a pair a 275/35/20 and a pot of Vaseline to reduce the damage to my backside.

PS4's are great value for money, for their grip, durability, noise level and overall good characteristics when on an Omega they outperform every other tyre I've had on an Omega, if it weren't for the noise the only tyre something like equal to them in my mind would be the Dunlop SportMaxx TT... until they fall off the planet when 2/3rds worn

Picked up L's new car yesterday.. surprisingly entertaining for 'only' 84hp. Definitely a marmite colour, but she loves it (and I like it):


[edit] Crap, I remembered this is meant to be a 20 page guessing game... ;) ;D
