well today i got my tyres fitted. They look and feel SOOO much better :D

They are toyo proxes 4 195/45 R16 over a J7. i got them online for £171 to my door...

As i work at a local college i asked one of the mechanic lectures if he would fit them for me (don't worry students are on holidays so none of there grubby little hands went near my car! lol)

cost of fitting and balencing= £15 for all four (BARGAIN! :D )

so thats a grand TOTAL of £186... :P :wub:

BEFORE: (205/50 R16 mondeo tyres)

Image

AFTER: Oh also cleaned, polished and few bits touched up until the car can get into my sisters boyfriends spray booth.

Then looked into changing the front seats as i personally found the standard ones very uncomfortable. got some Recaro RS2000 front seats off ebay for pennies... and mounted them on some mk3.5 runners. no modifications required- apart from fitting the seat belt tensioners of course.

:P

Hi, Sorry for this late a comment but I would like to know: did you feel the seating position was lower with the Recaro seats?

(Thanks!)
