  1. Vredesteins on roadster rims?
  2. Use a tread depth gauge ( a couple bucks at CT )and measure across the tire width to be sure. My right rear also wore faster than the driver's side. The insides usually wear faster as well. To even out the wear take them to a tire shop and get the rear rubber flipped on the rims and rebalanced. The left then goes on the right side, the right on the left due to the directional pattern. It will be a little noisier for a while, but will increase the service life of the tires.
  3. It is a direct replacement for the clock pod, no special software needed. It takes all it's information from the OBD port. All information is updated in real time. Especially nice for a pure that did not come with any rev/clock pods. Easily installed. Manufacturer's site Welte-Engineering Review at Evilution X-Gauge review $150 shipped in Canada. The faceplate is black . It comes in a pod with a pure trim ring. It is only good for the 2004-2006 450cdi diesel.

  9. After seeing the salt stains in my 450 after 3 years of winter driving, I wish they had these available. Only available for the 451s, they may seem pricey, but worth it.
  10. But there are those who carry things a little too far

  12. The first fill-up skewed the fuel economy rating. Last (2nd) tank was 6.57L/100km. Within normal parameters I think.
  13. metro-mike, are you using a scangauge/x-gauge, or a welt-engineering x-gauge?
