Not updated for a while, but in the last few weeks I have...

Put 2 front tyres on ( michelin pilotsport3 )
Hunter alignment
Oil filter housing gaskets
Full oil/filter service
Full new suspension ( Sachs struts/eibach pro kit springs ) and all new sundries.
And finally I have ordered a set of ATE discs and Textar pads ( I've heard this is OE suppliers ).

Car is running well still but will need a new radiator soon due to weeping on either side and need to replace the other two tyres

Well I fit the disc/pads all round and the car no longer sounds like a freight train when braking... just silence... heaven :)
Also feels a lot more responsive now, however I can't try too much till the brakes are bed in.
Handbrake now needs adjusting too so that's going to be interesting... hate handbrake tinkering

I'm after a little advice which I may have asked before but I can't remember any advice given.
My car is running on aftermarket 8.5j wheels all round and I've now fit a full set of Michelin Pilotsport 3 tyres ( 235/35/R19s but I don't want to ruin them prematurely.... can I ask what pressures you would recommend on this setup ??
Reason I ask is the wheels are not staggered as per original setup..... all 4 corners are uniform.
Thanks guys
