Right then everybody, where are we meeting and what time, so I can get my story straight and be there on time with the brusters!!!

Not heard from northy but just to double check, how much will i need, i think normally 195/50's are £45 a corner so with the fitting and discount will £150 be enough?

Also who's gonna be coming and at what time?

Danny

GazTwo
