My wife really freaks if I drive fast. So I rarely drive the car when she is in it. But on the occasion I am driving and alone I drive it resonably hard. Not 5000+ rpm hard (becuase the engine noise distracts me from the music) though.

I would consider myself to be a decent driver. I used to be better, my reactions faster and used more often, but I can still read the racing line of the roads I use pretty well.

You are correct;
The GSD 3 is not the best !!!

I prefer the Dunlop SP Sport Max [I use that in my Swift - also 17"] - Good Tyre !!
My favourite is the 'noisy' Bridgestone - Pole Positions & 2nd preferance is Michelin Pilot Sport.

I used to like the older GSD2's [many many years back - Lancer] but, the 3's are not in the same league. Got them 'cheap' so I installed them.

The rims look very nice B but one question, why are two bolts missing on your car's rear wheel?

Only the bolt coervs are missing. Skoda has a habit of loosing these covers at every service. Maybe it is their way of keeping track of the number of services the car has had. I am still fighting (it's been over a year) for the one they lost on my car.

Angry HU needs to be changed !!

Except for my HU Change;
All seems to be done.

Will wait for an Eclipse 7200.
If I cannot get it, then Alpine 9887 it shall have to be.

Am travelling for a bit, will have it done upon my return.
