    Got 4 x PS4s all round now

    The only critiscism is they seem a bit noisy- a little bit rumbly

    Dont remember that on the PS3s

    Not fussed really tho, and be interesting to see how they handle in the wet

    Thanks Chris I did get budget rear tyres but I don't know how long they will last! Michelins are the best for these DS3's but they do not last long either.....

Speak again in a couple of months! Lol
    Ive still not replaced my front budgets, but you can get a pair of PS4s for 200 if you look for offers- blackcircles etc
    But I am loathe to change out tyres that are still roadworthy even if they are budgets

    Anyway, one of the budgets is only 3 or 4 mm, so will probably end up getting 2 in the summer

    Catch up 2 months time ;-)

    Great, How the PS4s to your liking?

    I have a set on the back just done 2kmiles and not sure whether to invest in a front set too- just couple cheapos on the front

    I may well swap front 2 with back 2 to see how they fayre

    Good news.....DS3 had its shock absorbers replaced today at Citromech Wokingham......just ensure you book well in advance to avoid any delays from suppliers.....I was lucky to be on annual leave otherwise I could be losing days at work.......thank goodness the rattles have gone!

    Chris....sadly no.....I cannot afford time or expense for these.....also even at a local garage it is proving to be a pain in the arse to get the right o.e.m. shocks for the DS Performance......this could turn me right off the brand if I get more hassle .....I have no doubt that my next car will be something else and without any reliability issues!

    Opportunity to fit coilovers maybe?
