Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3


Recommended Posts

I came on here asking about these tires. Well, when removing a wheel to check something I realised one of my old tires had been scrubbed. So I took the plunge and bought the Eagle F1's, they worked out about £60 a corner, which is quite expensive I think. But then again, they're wicked tires. Unusually for Scotland, it hasn't rained in the past few days, so I dunno what they're like in the wet, but they're bloody good in the dry! I can go even quicker through corners than I used to be able to. My only problem is that I'm going so quickly now that my car's coming far enough down to scrape my new mudflaps off the ground :S


Mudflaps???!!! I hear you ask. Yeah. I bought some halfords jobs, I'm sick of cleaning tar and muck off the bottoms of the doors!!


New rear bumper on too. Gonna purchase a new silencer (don't think there's anything inside the one that's on the car) and fit a nice shiny tailpipe trim to it. See, the new bumper has the exhaust hole in the wrong place. Rather than just bend the pipe, i thought it'd be better if i got a twin pipe trim to poke out the back. Just gotta buy that n the silencer now...


Oh and a final note, Still haven't sorted my car's running. it's not been right since my local ford dealer did a timing belt on it. I'll get it sorted eventually, But it's a pain in the arse when you need to fix your car after "professionals" have been at it. Saying that, the guy claims he's worked on the 1800 turbodiesels for 20 years, which tells me he's not as clued up on them as he thinks. We all know that the 1.8 turbocharged intercooled diesel engine in the escort has only been around since about 1991!! Well, I do anyway...
