Okay... I got a nice yellow low-mileage SLK 230 for my wife's 40th birthday, which isn't until 22nd September.
In the meantime, the car lives in the work shed, and I get to drive it on Sundays.
This Sunday, I drove it to Auckland to collect a set of genuine 18 inch AMG alloys which were in great condition; like new but much cheaper.
I have been to the Mercedes site and done the calculations, and it is looking like 225/40 R18 tyres for the front and 255/35 R18 for the back.
It came to us running 16 inch alloys with Hankook tyres. This was a pretty good combo but I wanted something more.
After some consideration, I am going to have Goodyear Eagle Asymmetric 2 tyres fitted to the new alloys.
Next: headlight upgrade, ECU remap to stage 1, pulley upgrade kit and ECU remap to stage 2.
This is a pretty good car right now but by the time my wife's birthday comes up it is going to be an awesome car!
