Re: Fuel economy..

Over the 8,000 miles I've run my R since last October, my average is 33mpg (as shown on the WeConnect app). This includes many short trips but also some very long ones.

Re: T Roc R- swap out runflats?

ACC was very useful on the busier parts. PS. Before anyone comments we have a compelling family medical re...

Re: DCC- is it worth it on a T Roc R?

Cheers!

Re: Ryobi deal (might be of interest?)

All my tools are Ryobi battery powered as well. Work really well. Keep an eye out for deals on Ryobi at Homebase as they seem to sell off stock at half price sometimes. There’s also a Ryobi promotion at Xmas time where you get a free gift with purchase.

Re: Rear suspension TROC R

I think mine might have this as I have a rattle coming from that area. Let me know what happens.

I run a VPN on my laptop and it blocks all the ads from appearing. Leaves a white box in the space.
