Re: The Sightings Thread

I see trillions of dirty 156's daily (well 2 or 3 anyway) and they are not worth a mention. I see insidious's looooooooovely car in midleton the odd time. Other than that i mostly drive at night and in morning.

Same here, loads of 156s & a few 147s most days I'm in the city. GTs are rare enough on the roads as are 159s.

Give us a wave and a swerve sometime - the swerve is to wake me up....

Re: The Sightings Thread

I take that turn every morning (weekdays) but dont think i had any sideways motion going there this morning ... unlike this afternoon going round the sweep in exactly opposite direction coming onto the N25.

Lol, I know that one. She was in Dougla carpark on Sunday and I left her out she nearly fell over herself waving at me saying thanks. Seems like a nice lady. Buddy made the same mistake with that car too coming into carrigaline on his bike, went passed it thinking it was my car on the limiter of the bike with flames coming out of it. Looked into the car and saw a women driving it haha. Poor women must have scared herself to death.

My car has a set of Graphit OZ Ultraleggera's on it so that sets it apart from the others

Re: The Sightings Thread

I know the ones, in fact I was looking at a set today! How light are they? Any marks on em? ment to be "soft" enough.

Re: The Sightings Thread

No marks as they where bought brand new They seem strong enough, I hit a nasty pothole on the road to Kinsale there last week with a full car and the wheels took it fine. It has a set of 55 profile tyres so that helps. Only bad thing is with them being slightly wrong offset with the wobble bolts that came with em, it rubs over undulating roads with a full car other than that they are fine.

They are a super light wheel, you can carry two with wheels not a bother. I guess they are about 4kg's each with tyres, they felt very light anyway.
