  • How hard do you drive your car?

    My car is purely used for pleasure so its driven with enthusiasm but well looked after with regards to warm up, coold down and oil changes etc

    Just wondered if your cars get the same punishment

                It's a performance car - it gets driven like one. Think the day at 'Brunters' early in the year showed me that however hard you puch her on the road there is bags left. Just over 15k third set of tyres still as sweet at a bell.

                          16 times!? No wonder your tyres were on fire . I only did 7 in mine and my brother did 6 in his.
                          As for driving it hard, I spend most of my time in it commuting 10 miles to work and back, so I don't really get the chance to cane it. I save that for my days off .
