    Does that include fitting though, as I can't find it on their website, or a way to contact them without creating an account?
    Does not include fitting. My bloke charges £18 per wheel. Creating an account is painless.

    10k is on the upper end, I only got 8k out of the rears on my XFR (Dunslips)

    No reason whatsoever, other than to hike the price

    Lol, the remap was a good un, it was my foot slipping off the clutch that didn't help longevity

    I fear that will be less when the Spires exhaust goes on at the end of the month.

    Black Circles have two, but they're in Europe. I called Pirelli, who confirmed they are on back order from the factory.

    Your mpg will certainly take a hit, you will become a throttle tart overnight

    Surely, if tyres are the correct size, speed and load rating, the absence of a "J" is immaterial?
    XF replaced by a big tractor due to intransigence of Jaguar marketing. When I wanted to order, a V6 engine and a Portfolio interior was mutually exclusive if you lived in the UK, but not elsewhere.

    Old lives matter!

    There seem to be three versions of the "new" PZero. There is one for "luxury saloons" and one for sports cars with a slightly different tread pattern. Then there is the Corsa for supercars. The old Maserati PZero had less tread than the standard and according to some was also of a different rubber composition.

    Cheers Andy. That makes the overall cost more than others locally (including Black Circles, Kwik-fit & Halfords Autocentre).
