Re: Renault Vel Satis - Buying Advice
What tyres have you got on by the way? FYI when you need any new tyres, you'll presumably need 245x45 R18 XL tyres, the XL being important as Vel Satises require Xtra Load tyres. I've got Continental Sport Contact 3's on the rear and Michelin Primacy HP's on the front, but there are cheaper brands out there like Kuhmo which I've heard are pretty good too.
I fitted Enduro 916 tyres on mine, and got >20,000 miles from them - http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/2-x-245-45-18-...item563737f1b9
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
Currently in VelSatisfied's garage:
2005 FIAT Ducato 2.8JTD LWB Gran Volume, 2000 Kawasaki ZZR 1100 D7 'fullpower' in black + full GIVI & KAPPA luggage, 2007 MB R-Class 320 CDi Sport LWB uprated by Brabus to 300Bhp don't know if there's a 155mph limiter - will be fun finding out! 2004 Mercedes Vaneo 1.7 CDi Ambiente 7-seater
