[QUOTE=denpot29;168269]Quick update, car was fixed and after changing the tensioner and topping up the car with 2ltrs of oil 😬 the car is brilliant. Only 130, had a great chat with the guy at Sussex road and race too. Lots of advice and a great service. Highly recommend these guys. Time for a remap and time to ditch the runflats.

Glad you got it sorted.... I will be using them as well, the manic remap sounds good.

Why have you chosen to ditch the run flats out of interest?

The ride is hard but with runflats it's just too hard! I'll replace and just get a canister put in the boot in case of a puncture.

Trying to persuade the wife to do the same but she really likes the peace of mind they give her. I put "proper" tyres on a previous BMW and it totally transformed the ride. No more bouncing across bumps and the cabin noise was gone.

I hope the mini improves similarly...... if you do it please report back

7head. I've just done the run flat change, to goodyear eagle f1's. All I can say is 'WOW'. It's like a totally new car. The ride is far more compliant, quieter, the handling is now superb, before I didn't have total trust that I wouldn't bounce around the bend sideways, now it goes exactly where I want it to.
Even my wife, who wouldn't notice if we only had 3 wheels on it, said that the difference in the car is amazing.
It's by far the best money i've spent on a car. 90 a corner, fitted at halfords autocentre as well, which was the best price i could find locally to me.

I've just bought 4 new tyres, as soon as they're fitted I'll feedback back the difference! The guy at Sussex road and race said the car is immediately improved. 👍

Haha! Sounds like we are married to the same woman! I will definitely be doing this after hearing your review.... that's exactly the same improvement I had on the BMW..... the bloody runflats are terrible things. They are going for sure.

Thanks.

my Michelin Pilot sport 4's are en route.... excited.... fed up with having the wheel snatch out of my hand by a bump mid corner.
