    Tyre kit has still not arrived, as a result the 650 has not turned a wheel. Very annoying, as a friend is taking me out in his V10 M6, would have been nice to compare my 'slow' version . As a result, I will be taking the Super V8 instead. I tried a few more tyre places, no one will touch the run flats, so I have bit the bullet and ordered x2 Kumho KU39 LeSport for the bargain price of £85 each + fitting. I will be happier knowing it is on brand new tyres (rears were replaced at christmas), as my cars get driven as intended.

    New tyres were FINALLY fitted on friday, so £200 all in- very good price imo. It may be just me, but the ride seems smoother & quieter now. Glad I ditched the old tyres, I found a previous repair on outer band.

    After a mini photoshoot with Niall on Sunday with the Jag, I decided to have a go with my propper camera on the BMW




















    Pretty pleased with these, hopefully better than the usual quick iPhone snaps.

    Thanks Jim. Can't wait for the 'proper' photos to come by Niall. He really knows what he is doing, whereas I am just messing about.
