Re: Wheels refurbished

I’ve had a few sets of wheels done by local mobile companies, ok but not perfect.

I had a set done at Lepsons in Kent and was very happy, not much more expensive than the mobile boys either.

Re: ABS lights - frustration!

I have a friend with a BMW X5 and he was having problems with ABS as described, his local mechanic said it was the alternator playing up, under and overcharging so he replaced it, ABS problem gone.

Not saying it’s always that but worth looking into.

Mine is mostly stock apart from Eibach front and H&R rear springs.

I’m a big fan of Michelin Pilot Super Sports and this has Continental Sport 3’s on the front and Continental Sport 6’s on the rear, very impressed with those although not had a drive in the wet yet.

Good advice indeed. I thought the Zed gearbox was more or less bulletproof.

Price will always vary due to condition.
Yours has damage to the bonnet and looks to have damage to the front bumper and stone chips.
If you are asking for opinions then I would’ve have been happy to accept the £4150 that it reached on EBay it it were mine.
