That is looking GOOD, man. Nice work. I'd love to score one of those someday.

HELP ME CHOOSE SOME TIRES.

The Kumho all seasons (no seasons) that are on the car are done so it's time for some new rubber. The stock size of 215/50-15 is NLA in anything affordable and streetable so it's going to be 225/50-15 again. The car does not see winter so summer tires are a must. I don't track it but want the most grip I can afford in case I have to stop or swerve in a hurry. They should look cool or period or both. Treadwear is a non-issue as these will age out before they wear out.

I've narrowed it down to 4 but can't quite decide:

P ZERO TROFEO R $169





PROXES R888 $138





PROXES R888R $140





PROXES RA1 $189

The car is running but not perfectly (more later) so I have been taking every opportunity to drive it and pose around in it. Took it to the post office:






A cars and coffee or two:








Parked in in the driveway:




and at the showroom:






I even parked it outside the local Audi dealer:




This really is the key to happiness.

Took the car to AutoEurope in Birmingham for:

new tires
alignment
detailing
dent removal

Now so clean. Hadn't been cleaned for three years!










They did a great job. Shame it's parked back in the showroom and not in my drive.





Next on the agenda is to address the hesitation under load at around 3-4000rpm. Any ideas?
