  1. I had an accident some years ago when a guy ran into the side of me. I claimed on his insurance and they sent an inspector round to examine my car. The first thing he did was to check my tyre pressures.
  2. Your pressures (front 2.3 bar (33 psi) and rear 1.8 bar (26 psi)) are correct. If you were to change them to any significant degree your insurance company might not pay out in the event of an accident.
  3. It's odd how different people get different results. I can get up tp 45 mpg around town with stop start on. 50+ on a run and 45 at a steady 70.
  4. Checked this morning and the DRLs do dim on the side that the indicator is working on,
  5. I have a 13 plate titanium and it has LED DRLs.
  6. You don't want to blind people behind you at the traffic lights with extra bright brake lights either.
  7. I never turn mine off. I sometimes drive 70 miles up the M1 and when the stop start operates at the far end you can still heat the fan and pumps working.
  8. You don't need to use the handbrake for stop/start.
  9. I have the uniroyal rain sport 3 tyres and they are brilliant. I've done 3000 miles on the fronts so far and there is little sign of wear.
  10. Many thanks for the information Matthew. Might be very useful some time in the future.
  11. I bought a Granada Scorpio 4x4 new some years ago. I ran it in carefully, serviced at 1000 miles and 5000 miles. It did 178,000 miles and never used a drop of oil.
  12. Mines exactly the same but the air con works perfectly. First car with air con I've had that doesn't get water under it.
  13. I always take the dash cam and sat nav off my windscreen when the car goes for MOT. My dash cam goes to the left of the mirror where I can't see it as I consider it a distraction.
