    Just found out that my tracking was off by a small amount. I only noticed when I hit 90mph (I know it's wrong but she made me do it) then there was a slight shudder. As a result the inside tread on the two font tyres have worn down to within about 1mm - about 5mm from the edge of the tread, the...
  12. Illegal license plate

    I have an illegal license plate on my spider because the original ones are too large.
