the water right onto the rotors. If you drive a lot in the rain you may want to block the cooling ducts?????: I have an 98 M, I lurve my car to death, have had it nearly a year, its great blah blah blah, had a 1.9 before so I know how fab the M is etc etc etc
: Before that I had an MR2 whose performance, looks etc were all ok and groovy, HOWEVER the brakes were a MILLION miles better in the WET. I say this after driving back from manchester airport tonight in monsoon conditions, went to apply the brakes - NOTHING for about 1-2 hours (it was probably only 1/2 a second, just things seem to slow down when your life passes before you!!!). Am I remebering my MR2 with rose coloured glasses? do all cars exhibit this behaviour in the wet???? I'm sure my wifes Rover 600 isn't as bad as this!!!
: Got some NEW 255/40/17 Dunlops - FANTASTIC in the wet!! shame about the brakes!! If your tyres are wearing, and it rains alot replace them , its weeeelll worth it!!!
