Re: Rear suspension toe out causing tyre wear

I believe that Volvo upper banana arms will fit and are adjustable; I hope so as I have a pair but haven't got around to fitting them yet.
My rear tyres went down to the canvas in 16 months.

Sounds about right.
Charge for parking a car that has no emissions when it is parked?

Put a new battery in and see if it makes any difference.

Re: XJR6 Tyre Options

Thanks for the reply Peter, very much appreciated. I vividly remember, whilst transiting a roundabout backwards in my MGB, promising myself never to fit Pirelli Cinturatos to any car that I owned in the future. It's a shame, given the state of the roads in Wiltshire, that they don't make 17 inch tra...

Re: XJR6 Tyre Options

Ok, so a bit more research done and still no conclusions!
Mine is running 255/45/R17 tyres; a favourite option seems to be to go for 235/50/17 ones.
i am probably going to go for Toyo TR1 tyres (which my brother-in-law swears by, even on his track day car) as they have excellent wet grip.

Still haven't fitted the dump valve but have found out where it goes which took a while.

Maybe people are just too busy trying to keep them going to have time to go on the forum.

Re: Front end creak / clicking

Does your car have the cross bars at the top of the engine bay. These can come loose over time and make strange noises. When I had a very weird noise coming from somewhere at the front we found it by me driving very, very slowly whilst the mechanic stuck his head in the engine bay in various places ...
