Absolutely Ridiculously priced. Perfectly suitable tyres are available by the set for the price of one of those. Talk about milking the brand :shock:
I think the price is largely dictated by volume. 215/50 R15 hasn't been a standard fit on anything for years.

Find a friendly MOT inspector if you fit LED or HID headlamps. The following is from the MOT inspection manual regulations from 1st February. "Existing halogen headlamp units should not be converted to be used with high intensity discharge (HID) or light emitting diode (LED) bulbs. If such a convers...

Re: Can I post pdf files?

I was sure that there used to be a facility for attachments (pdf file or what ever) and indeed if you go to your User Control Panel there is an option to "Manage Attachments".
However I can't see how you can do this in the current version so it is, as Richard suggests, probably an Admin setting.

Fingers crossed!
Richard, what I said before still applies.
They are planning on the show as it was, so unless someone drops out there will be no opportunity for any clubs not originally on the list.
I don't know whether they have a reserve list.

Clarion Events have said that the existing traders/clubs/features will be automatically included, so unless they have anyone drop out of the rearranged event, or they expand it, there will not be any opportunities.

Unfortunately this was pre Thatcham classification so I had a replacement installed later with Thatcham certification to satisfy my insurers at the tim...
