I'd be interested to know what adjustments they made to the front ...


Well, looking at the invoice it just says "adjust toe-out". I've taken a look at the suspension and it doesn't look like any of the adjustment nuts/bolts have been touched, so it looks like just the tracking has been adjusted. I've got a print out of the Geometry, TBH it doesn't make a great deal of sense to me!

I've just looked at the tyres to check the date code - there isn't one. Which I think means they must be 16 years old at least - eeek! There is cracking on the face of them, but the sidewalls look ok. To be safe I've just ordered a set from Blackcircles - Toyo Proxes. Maybe this will make it even nicer to drive!
