na, o/s/f and n/s/r

random, i think there's an underlying problem tbh as it was the same ones that cracked last time (although not at the same time)

i'm used to it now though.. just venting

but as asked, were/are you on RFTs?

are you 100% sure they were correctly inflated? (the flat tyre monitor doesn't trigger until 19" RFTs are massively underinflated in my experience)

not a chance, i wouldn't take it to those fuckwits.. i only take mine to Sytner Sunningdale now as the service is just another level..

i don't know why... but i put it down to them also being a Rolls Royce dealership / service centre, always fantastic.
