    LinITX and 5% discount at the meet.. sounds awesome. I think I will be purchasing the stuff for my next carputer. I hope he takes everything I need.. like a err..

    xenarc 700TSV
    Epia 12000 or 13000
    M1 PSU
    Slot DVD/CDRW (even DVD-RW) drive

    that will do for starters :-) Just think with the money I save might buy me a burger. One thing I can say about Chris from LinITX is hes always offers to help, he even sent me a BR303 to try with FreeDrive to make sure it worked. Which reminds me.. I must send it back.. opps

    Have a look at the tyre section in autotrader - it lets you choose the tyre you want and the prices seem pretty reasonable. I picked up a couple of Falken 195-50 R15's for 31 each from Eurocarparts and then paid some local geezer 10 CIH to fit and balance them - and he did a good job and they are pretty nice tyres.
    215/45/R17 Continental ContiSport Contact as I say I got them 120 each in the end inc vat+fitting.

    Looked on the auto trader, cheapest for those was 124 Which is what I pay at the place I'd usually go

    I was gonna say what ****ing size for that much!

    At least they're decent tires! I had those on the 16" alloys I got for my Carisma last year...they wore down and I now have Hankook Ventus Sport all round now...they're pretty terrible (and at half the price of a set of ContiSport's i'm not too surprised)

    Cheap tyres = false economy and a waste of time and ****e grip

    Jsut looking at the pictures of all your cars on the front page of this thread and they are all nice and shiny and some of you have nice installs - how depressing!

    Yeah, we will have the MP3Carisma, plus a Mitsubishi FTO (Andrew's) all kitted up with installs We're also hoping to have dual monitors in at least one of them (once I get the time to cut out my air vents - but I'm off work for a week from Wednesday! )

    Hey CdR,

    Just make sure you've ordered in advance so that LinITX can make sure they take the right stuff for you.
