  1. I recently replaced my rears with Falken tyres. They are great so far. Quieter than the Pirelli Scorpion Verde tyres that were originally fitted, with no loss of wet or dry grip that I’ve noticed. I previously replaced my fronts with Pirelli Scorpions Verdes and they will need changed again in the near future. I’m almost at 30,000 miles. I’ll probably put Falkens on them. I think I only got about 16,000 out of my front tyres, although I change at about 2.5mm, rather than waiting until handling is affected.
  2. Like this ? Not considered it myself, but personal preference I suppose.
  3. Great. Thanks for that. Mystery solved.
  4. It’s not really a towing eye although that’s what most folk call it. It’s a lashing eye, for tying down the car in transit. @eddiek Yes it has the factory fitted removable tow bar. I wonder if this prevents the screw in socket from being used. I’d be interested if anyone else has the factory fitted tow bar but also has the screw in socket for the towing eye / lashing eye.
  5. Here’s a photo inside my rear towing eye hole. As you can see, there is no threaded hole inside. How odd. Sorry the image has loaded sideways. Turn it 90 degrees to the right.
  6. I think you are ready to go back to work right enough.
  7. I drive with my eyes open and keep a safe distance from the car in front. 😆
  8. Is the “HUD” not the row of LEDs which irritatingly flash in your face when your active city stop is activated, usually when you don’t want it or can see the perceived hazard a mile off ?
  9. How strange. Mine just has a hole. You can see an electric loom and a bit of chassis, but no threaded hole. I’ll take a picture.
  10. I’ve got a 2017 Edge Sport. Today I had to use it to pull a fork lift truck that had got stuck in a hole. I was surprised to find that when I removed the cover for the towing eye in the rear bumper, there was no screw hole inside for the towing eye to screw into. Under the cover in the front bumper there was a screw hole so I manage to do what I set out to do, but in reverse. Can anyone else take a look please and see if they are all like this or has mine got something missing.
  11. I’ve got a Mini Coop near me. I get all my bread and daily milk there ! 😂
  12. As Peter said above. One on mine was not seated perfectly square until I worked out how to put the spring clip onto the bulb before I inserted the bulb. This seated it perfectly square and I have had no issues with the lights and the car has since passed its MOT with the LEDs installed.
  13. It also says it includes mapping updates. Hopefully from your settings it knows what maps to update. I think I’ll wait until a guinea pig tries first. 😉
  14. Is this UK compatible as it looks like it’s for US vehicles.
