it's clearly a tire-issue, in combination with temperature. On the stock tires, my R does this in winter a lot. In summer it's non-existent. I have winter-wheels which I will mount in november or so, so I'm curious how they will behave. In any case it is not a bug, just a feature. :)

Mine has 0 to do with temperature. Rail, hail, or shine, or heatwave (stupid Australia) it will happen.

But yeah a nice feature that wont stop :(

Also interested to see how your winter wheels go.

This is a common fault.

Basically the geometry doesn't help things but it could also be down to play in bearing and bushes etc.
I've had my struts replaced under warranty as they though that they were moving, bu it still did it, the technician rotated the strut and it seemed to solve it!!!

Had the front wheel/LSD juddering today, its just above 0 so the tyre compound is hard (as the Goodyears artsticky summer tyres and not softer winter tyres for these temps).
I would say there is no issue here, just physics and hard (cold) rubber (as we all know, summer tyres are not as good below 7 deg as they take longer to warm up).

Mine has done a scrub or two on full lock. Could be why they have plastic front liners instead of carpet like the rear?

Stop it from wearing it through too quickly maybe?!

Also noted the noise on full lock on my R too over the last few weeks, certainly wasn't there when we had the warmer weather.

Can remember it making a right old noise ( had the ferry ops looking anyway ) when having to turn on full lock driving on the ferry on the steel floor, but it never did it on the road - until now.

Funny thing is and this might be purely coincidental with the change of season - only started after having the car in for replacement discs + pads. Can defo say never did it before, you know those times that you wished you never said owt, well I was kinda thinking that when I heard the noise after discs done. Guess swap one evil for another.

:lol: Laugh and the whole world laughs with you.... or is that at you? :lol:

I changed to winter wheels a few weeks ago and haven't noticed the full lock judder since.
