    I've driven on them a bit now. Grip is typically winters but the steering feel with the lighter alloys and ride with the extra tyre depth is a revelation.

    Not a bad buy at all these so far!

    Had an issue with my washer jets just being very poor, pretty much since the cold weather had started. Scuttle off and a blow down the jet pipe once disconnected near the driver side wiper and it is back to full flow. Easy.

    Also replaced the HKS RSK element which was well over due.





    MOT booked for the end of the month, and the rear beam bushes are going so that will be the next job, getting Stevie at Grinspeed to Polybush the rear beam... Joy.

    Just the rears? He said it can be a pig as they have to be drilled out. It can take 3-4 hours plus the bushes which are 145ish Linky

    I'm having it done while I wait, aye.

    Who me?

    Sorry, realised the lack of explanation on my part, as it is either that or buy a new rear beam for 870. You can't buy the OEM bushes in their own, they come with the beam.

    My first FN2 was fully polybushed including engine mounts. I hope I know what to expect and this is only the rear, which will probably then show up the tired rear shocks I didn't stretch to last service but hey ho...
