    Thoughts on the E87?

    they are a nice wee car imho nice steering and brakes,not as roomy as you would think esp compared to a fwd hatch.ride is harsh with runflats.

    Run Flats --again !

    even my 120d warned me well before i think you would notice by any other means.Try it out.On a quiet road(have a compressor!) let say one of the rear tyres down say 5psi at a time .I am betting you will get a warning before you can spot the difference

    Run Flats --again !

    yes i was somewhat put out.I am pretty sure that the tyre didnt really go below 20psi.from the outside the tyre looked 100 percent.The only good thing was that the tyres were pretty near the end of life anyway.

    Run Flats --again !

    the only flat i got on my 120d with run flats was unoticeable until the warning went of on sh2 at 100 ks....i was close to a traffic light and only a few ks from work so i drove gingerly to work(50km hr max.I pumped the tyre up at lunchtime and that evening the tyre was s till at good pressure.When i went to get the tyre fixed they wouldnt fix it.so i had to buy a new one.So dont bank on using the tyre again anyway.Their excuse was that they didnt know what damage the tyre may have suffered.

    Import tax

    that true andy but the system is too convoluted and there should not be any means to avoid tax...the sytem makes it legal but it should not be so imho. it should be a wider and flatter system
