    Morning mate!! Cheers for that!!

    Well it’s a REALLY positive outcome folks!! The receptionist has just told me that all 4 wheels will get replaced under warranty…..

    AND…. they have 4 wheels in stock if I’d like to wait they’ll fit them right now!!

    What more can I say… ABSOLUTELY DELIGHTED!! 👍👍👍.

    Cheers, Marc.

    happy days Marc ! Don’t forget you will have to run them in carefully so they end up as fast as your old ones. Innit?



    No nothing.

    No Mods. No rockers. Just a chunky knob.

    No tackiness.

    Std as Ford intended, but with a space saver wheel and jack and nuts and wheel brace. oh.. and flaps, a man has got to have flaps.

    Innit?

    It is indeed!! Cheers mate!! 👍.

    @71-bda

    I’ve got a 300 mile round trip when I leave the garage to pick up my youngest son for the weekend!! So by Sunday night they’ll have done a minimum of 600 miles. I’m sure that’ll be fine mate, haha!!

    Just need to decide how I’m going to protect them?? Had a Ceramic coat on the last ones so probably just do that again. Nice n easy to take care of…. Suits me just fine!! Lol!! 🤪.

    Cheers, Marc.

    Evening mate!! Mud flaps ARE on the shopping list actually!! I just can’t decide which ones to get?? Also, it would appear I have a dilemma…. That little black plastic trim that sticks out each side of the rear wheel arches…. well I only have one?? It’s at the drivers side and nothing at the passengers?? I’ve had a feel about but nothing so I’m gonna have to take off the wheel arch liner and have a proper look. I remember noticing when I got the car new that there was only one so I checked a grey RS that was parked there and it also only had one so I never thought anymore of it. Until now that I’m looking to get mud flaps and everybody else seems to have 2?? 🤔.

    @71-bda

    Very clean indeed mate!! Only real issue this time of year is the 45,000 bugs glued to the front of the motor after every Highland Blast!! Lol…. 😫🤪.

    Cheers, Marc.

    @Brembo – I’m on a 17 plate and I have a sticky out thingy on both sides! Should be covered under warranty.

    The forged alloy blistering issue.

    Ford appear to admit to a manufacturing error. So is it a particular batch or year? If mine are to go the same way I just hope it happens while the warranty is live.
