    The 300bhp would be helpful when overtaking to enable a much safer pass, our Ateca has 190 and makes passing quicker and safer

    By the way I used to enjoy our old 205gti, much fun in the hills around North Wales

    Mob ops approved the tyre change while I was there no problem

    Refitted with Bridgestone, what Kwik Fit did say was that the original tyres weren’t the higher load rating tyres which I thought they should be given the weight of the car

    Looks like Seat went for style over sustance

    On my last golf the tyres needed replacing quicker than on any other car i have had, although it was the 1st with adaptive cruise, which i used alot and the car often braked alot more than i would of done often slamming them on and add that to the traction control and all the safety stuff on the car, even the brakes needed changing in the 3 years i had it and that has never happened before. So might be part of it but to wearout so quickly 8k is possible imo. Guess it’s putting alot of power down if you got the 190 version.

    It is an auto with 4drive and 190 bhp so it could be putting the power through the rears a little more than usual and a lot of the miles are on some good winding north Wales roads

    We’ll have to see what the next ones manage

    Just change front tyres today as they were at 2.5mm on the mot on Tuesday. The car is coming up to 3 years old and has only covered 10.5k so was quite shocked at the wear rate. The rears are at 4mm. The tyres are conti’s.

    Unusual for conti’s always found those hard wearing

    I don’t have any problem with kwik fit as they have always treated us OK but its just the tyres I’m not happy about, it’s the wear rate (8400) that I’m moaning about

    As its always been a like for like tyre exchange so its going to be Bridgestone again

    I guess they are allowing the change of tyre due to it also needing a puncture repair

    <p style=”text-align: left;”>

    Perhaps they think he’s a retail customer! Once they try and get an authorisation code for the new tyres things might be different. On the other hand, there might be a depot manager there with more empathy

    </p>
    They were fully aware that the car is a motability car as I always inform them first as soon as I speak to them

    8000 miles is really bad , I think if you had to pay for the tyres out of our own pocket I would not be happy

    I thought that KwikFit / Motability would not renew tyres until there down to 2mm?

    Yes not happy with the wear rate, and kwik fit took photos of the tyres for motability etc

    And to make matters worse the coffee machine is out of bounds due to covid restrictions

    Drive it like you stole it is the usual cure for this and the dpf in the diesel

    Just get your revs up to around 2500 for a while and should burn things out of the exhaust
