No need to hide! You'll eventually hanker for a Mitsu :) In the meantime perhaps we can still help.

The right foot determines the mileage you will get out of a set of tyres! :D

I use both sets, as the use dictates, and have put 65000 on the combined sets.
I think I will get another 50000 out of the two sets combined, which I think is very good.

I seldom 'windgat' it, though.

NOT being windgat is difficult with that engine. That jet like acceleration is addictive.

I know af a former colleague who had a touareg v10 and his tyres lasted only 11k.

cant say i am a huge fan of VW but hey never owned one so i will reserve my opinion for now :)
I need to retract my previous post :lol: Swambo bought a VW Vivo in December and i have to admit my opinion and personal feelings towards the VW brand have changed.

Me thinks the T-Rex looks very good with the bigger tires :D :D
