Get a cheap internet subscription so you can spend enough time on this board!

Theres nothing really troublesome about the 172 really. Expect a few rattles and squeaks, and other minor build-quality issues that youd expect to get with a car costing 12k. They dont need much running-in - just a few days to make sure nothings going to fall off. Expect to get an airbag warning light on at some stage - nothing to worry about - its just the wiring under the seats and your dealer has a tech-note telling him how to fix it.

Buy lots of tyres whenever you see them for sale at a good price! Save up loads of ££££ for track days!

Thanks :)

Ill be in here loads (especially when i get the little beast and need to talk about it 24/7)

Top forum btw

Hi all,

Hi there Owzy, Im looking forward to having a go in your Cup. Just make sure you get in run in ASAP then come round for a blast.

Talking tyres, I was just going to mail Owzy, but as this will be of use to everyone, and its where Ill be getting my tyres from now on.

I dont know about clio tyres, but the bridgestones I use are half the price most places quote, £74 quid each compared to £120-160.

Have you used them yet? The tyres that I was looking at look a little pricey (Toyo), but the wheel & tyre packages look really good value.

No, but a few people on the Honda-R & Evo forum have, think the price includes fitting or postage.

Just noticed that if you search here for , in March one of your guys negotiated a 10% discount for members.
