I'm actually in Amsterdam, waiting in the hotel lobby as I'm going back to the UK now.

Your descriptive journey was a good read and has helped kill some time, so cheers for that.

Good read. Makes me think of my memories, as I have hit most of those places. I got plans to see the ones I haven't hit yet. BTW, this is what is sitting down there now, my family toured the plant on T-giving day.



mmm. frosted.

Awesome writeup, David. Looked like a pretty bromantic roadtrip It's almost been a year since you've gotten your car. How's everything with your ED?

The 19 313 are visually stunning in real life. That one inch difference over the 18's gives the car a much more aggressive look and every time someone would see my car for the first time they would compliment them.

As for their durability; they are above average i would say. I kinda drive like a maniac sometimes and nyc roads are horrible to say the least that being said they still hold up pretty well. I do have a few bends but not large enough to cause a leak or drop in tire pressure. A little vibration here and there when going above 130mph 140mph but nothing too serious.

For your sake i hope they put on the p-zero tires on them. Those tires are GODLY!!! best tires ive ever had hands down. Even after all the hard driving in the alps, the fast driving on the autobahn, and racing on the ring they didnt wear away much. I would say you can probably get aleast 20k out of the rears even with an occasional burn out lol.

hope that settled your nerves a bit. congrats on the car

Thanks for the feedback and yeah would be nice to get the Perelli's but that's unfortunately out of my hands so at this point wishing for anything not titled Potenza. I live in Ct. and the Roads here are a flat out disaster almost as bad as NYC so hence the worrisome attitude as those babies cost $$ to replace,Take-Care and good luck with the "IS" Hmm wonder if those safety 18's look that bad??

Yea i had potenza's on my XI and i wanted to kill bmw for it. Im sure ull get the pzero if u got the 19's. I saw the 18's and they just look meh. But i guess thats just personal opinion.
