    Hi all, I have recently bought a new set of discs for the rear of my E91 320d. The discs are the correct size but the centre for the handbrake sock is 185mm and the one on my car is 124mm. Would I be able to buy a set of handbrake socks 185mm and then just put them on ? Or would I need to...

    I’ve just had another pair of Conti runflats for the front of the car to match the rear I had fitted recently. They feel great but obviously they are a summer tyre and winter is on its way. We don’t get much snow here in the midlands and in the past I have run summer tyres all year round with no...

    So this is my first post, and I am interested to know if any members have used or intend to try "auto socks" in the snow. There are some good reports on the web, and after being rendered immobile this year, both in my 330i auto, and my wifes SLK, I think that they may be worth a try! Any thoughts?:)
