Re: Bulb list

That’s perfect.

I will check if I have sealed beam or not this eve. Here is hoping! I think they are halogen from memory and they are quite bright.

Re: Tyres for series 3 RX7

You'd be better off going 195/60/14 anyway. The stock wheel is only 5.5in wide so the 195 has less lateral roll.
That is what I understand. The car is on 195/60/14 at the moment and handles well. Its a balance between the additional 10mm of tread and the sidewall flex.

Can you get Proxies and Bridgestone in 205/60r14 in Germany? They only come in 195/60r14 here.

Kumho do come in 205/60r14 but I believe they are Koren :mrgreen:

I read somewhere that the car actually handles better on 195/60r14 with better steering feel? There is a wider selection including some Continentia...

Looking forward to give it a proper 'test' when I unpack the tools from the car. Roundabouts of Sussex beware.

Re: Roxy

I had been suffering with a knocking sound from the back end. To add to this the near side wheel had some movement in it like a worn wheel bearing. This was confusing as I replaced the wheel bearing not may miles ago. Advice on the forum was that it could be the diff. Investigating it further I coul...
