Had new set of 255 55 19 HP Wranglers fitted today. Lots of fresh rubber and tread. Shame the snow has gone although had no grip problems last week with the old tyres.

New slider on the near side rear brakes and new rear pads. Also a new oil seal on the the driver side driveshaft. All courtesy of Broadfields in Dunmow - super service as always.
The downside was I already had a spare set rear discs and pads 2007 D3 TDV6 XS

Just fitted new EGRs after 60,000+ miles. One was still working, just, the other was partially seized.
Stripped the old motors off and found that the valve stems were pretty well grunged up. Soaked them in a 50/50 acetone and auto transmission oil (ATF) mix and then worked the mechanism so that the valve opened and closed easily. Will give them a final thorough clean, lubricate, reassemble and test. Hopefully will then have a spare set.

Fitted full size spare and ordered a wheel protector from uncle Ray. The 10 old spare wasn’t looking too shiny despite probably never having been used.
Also had 2 new Pirelli ATR’s fitted on the front. 2007 D3 TDV6 XS
