You needed new tyres after 30,000 kms??? Cars these days seem to chop out the fronts so soon, don't they?
My XF has been so gentle on tyres ever since I lowered it, even though I give it a caning around corners. I've been getting something like 80,000 kms out of them (I haven't recorded exactly).
Welcome to FF, anyway. I migrated from Google Groups (alt.ford.falcon) where the activity has pretty much died. I still have unanswered questions sitting there from months ago. I think a lot of people are coming from there.
See you 'round.
If it ain't broke don't fix it.
