If I wrapped my current round a tree I'd be tempted with the upgrade, need to find out if exhaust mounts are identical or how much the engine has been shifted if I can transfer existing mods over to the new one.
Well i am ashamed to say i screwed up my order and accidentally got AS3 installed. I only noticed when checking the paperwork upon collecting the car from Halfords. So so annoyed o ordered the wrong ones. They were both the same price too, which is why i must have got them confused.I currently have Michelin PS4 215/45Y R17 with 18k miles on them and under 3mm left on them. Before that the car still had Primacy tyres.

Any reason not to go for the Eagles?
How many miles did you get out of them?I swapped from AS3 to AS5 about a month ago. Cant say they feel less grippy, quite the opposite in fact. Granted new tyres are going to feel better than worn, but the AS3s weren't completely shot at the time they were replaced.
How many miles did you get out of them?
Ta. I also changed with around 3mm average left because of that offer.I'm not entirely sure, but at a (very) rough estimate after reviewing my MOT history for mileage since the time they were fitted about 3.5 years ago, looks like about 22K miles.
They were all down to 3mm when I changed, so I could probably have got another few thousand miles out of them, but I had been thinking of changing them anyway and then saw the offer you posted which prompted me to change them before winter.
In 2024, new European safety protocols will come into force, and vehicles that do not comply with these General Safety Regulation 2 standards will not be allowed to be sold. This will even apply to existing, un-registered stock held centrally by vehicle manufacturers.
In order to comply with these strict new regulations, the GR86 would have to be completely re-engineered. Apart from being economically unviable for a small-volume sports car like the GR86, compliance with these regulations would detrimentally affect the dynamic character of the car. Make no mistake, the GR86 is already a very safe car. It’s just that from 2024 it simply wouldn’t be the driver’s car everybody knows and loves.
Where did hear about the UK allocation figure from please?
That’s not what the car is meant to be. It’s meant to be a NA driver focused car. I’m glad it’s na. Everything is turbo these days. People who have driven this compare it to modern day s2000 which can only be a good thing.Why didnt they just make a turbo model.
A company making a turbo Yaris, Corolla, and Supra can't out out a turbo gt86.
