Re: Mark's FK2 "Black Edition" & other random stuff

I test drove an 09 plate earlier in the year. Sounds lovely. Didn't float my boat enough to go for it as a second car though.

Re: Mark's FK2 "Black Edition" & other random stuff

Yeah Michelins going on the Fk8 next but because all my journeys are fast moving roads I get better wear rate than city boys with no to very little stop start, pulling out of junctions etc . That's despite attacking the corners when I can. 7k on the tyres and fronts at 4.5 mm approx. Rears just unde...

Ah are we talking about the very latest ones? The latest ones are getting very good reviews. The biggest change is Goodyear have stiffened the sidewalls to continental/ Michelin levels. Previous ones I'm not sure about for a type r as they had soft shoulders and more turn in entry flex . Was actuall...

Re: Mark's FK2 "Black Edition" & other random stuff

I personally when choosing mine didn't like them in any other colour than black. I didn't like the shinny black side skirts etc which are a gloss finish and to me look wrong. In black they obviously blend in. If my Fk8 had those gloss finish skirts etc rather than the carbon effect I would have stuc...

Is cash really king these days though when money is made on finance deals. ? I don't think it makes much difference at Jon's price point??

Re: For a giggle...

Great choice Ranjan. I got to drive the Giulia Quadrifoglio at Millbrook and it was awesome. The stelvio of course has the benefit of the 4wd. Big Alfa fan myself. Had over 15 in my time. [emoji3526]

Re: Mark's FK2 "Black Edition" & other random stuff

Just a thought Jon. Some of the early cars had gearbox issues. Same as the Fk8. That's why I went for one as they were ending production. So make sure she's swaps cogs nicely.

Re: Mark's FK2 "Black Edition" & other random stuff

Hiya, you want the Gt model. It has so much more and will hold its value better. It should be cheaper to insure too. In fact it wasn't that much more than an non gt new Choose the GT pack and safety is even stronger thanks to standard fit adaptive cruise control and parking sensors front and rear. ...

Dred to think what you thought TDU stood for ;) Guesses as to what it could have stood for anyone?!? I worked out what it really meant when we had our Dorset meet to Bude years ago. Needless to say I nearly got a slap in the face and punch in the stomach. Lol. Sent from my F5121 using Tapatalk

Re: Dorset & Somerset - Shaftesbury to Winchester, Sunday 6th October

Hi Duncan. Listen mate. Worry not. Me and Nigel have decided the best thing to do is postpone this meet till we can get the numbers up and a few more cars back on the road for definate. So no rush. It will give you more time for the ignition etc
