Misted windscreen

Re: Correct size of spacesaver for R18?

BarryMac -- the spec of that tyre gave a 63 cms height of wheel/tyre which matches my R Line wheels. Have you got a link to where you got your R LINE spacesaver as I cannot find it listed. Thanks.

Space saver wheel for T Cross R line - best price?

I know a lot has been said about this subject but the best price I can find for a spacesaver for my R Line with 18 inch wheels is £180 which includes tool kit and carriage.

ENGINE EMISSIONS POTENTIAL PROBLEM

I am not having much luck at the moment as a new problem has since arisen with an orange warning engine/emissions sign showing on dash. Have booked car into garage tomorrow. Have recently noticed that my MPG is poor compared to many on this forum and put it down to frequent short journeys. Also noti...
