That is true about the manufacturer's, but Michelin's are the best IMO for ultimate street use as well as track use, and yes they are expensive but well worth it! Yes the Conti's that come on the RCZ are not performance tyres.



Michelin pilot sport3 for my car are only £200 fitted......may well go for these when a change is due :thumbup:


Those are nice but Michelin Pilot Super Sport even stickier and the best ultimate street tyre and work well on the RCZ due to the weight of the car and how it is designed. I have them and several others do over on the continent and we all love them...a little more expensive @ 250.00 per tyre, but well worth it. So for the price of another PS3 you can have the ultimate street tyre ;)

I was just looking at tires earlier today and the original Conti's were about 300 € a piece.

Would be fun going on a track day but paying for those bastards aren't equally that much fun... :(

I rather like the interior. The seats look mega and I like the red stitching touches on the dash and the seats. Very impressive.

Looks rather nice in red too - but then I am slightly biased :)

Thanks for sharing!

:thumbup: - the new seats, gearstick (looks awfully similar to the one in the 208 GTI), the red stitching in the interior and the exhaust.

:thumbdown: - the Audi TT mk1 stick on spoiler and the cheap Halfrauds looking alloys.

I luv the interior

The rest bar the plank of a spoiler and exhausts just looks like a normal RCZ bit of a let down that. £32500 I'd kinna want it to look some wot different than the bog standard car.

Oh and the alloys are terrible really Peugeot must try harder. Check out Nathan's to see what a decent set of rims look like.

I dont like that R plate thing in the centre console. Is it some sort of button?

And thanks for the comment about my rims :D

I do think the R should have had bigger fatter wheels to give it a more planted feel. (although the RCZ doesnt lack that much in handling). Since I upgraded my wheels to 9 inch wide with 255 tyres, the handling feels really nice. And thats with only 156bhp. I cant see it handling that well on the standard size with the extra power.
