23 Year Old with a S3 DHC - What could go wrong?

I like my Longstone Tyres

Air mail, they arrived a week later
Born, and brought home from the hospital (no seat belt (wtf)) in a baby!
Find out where the limits are, and start from there

Was the shipping prohibitively expensive?

Shipping Included
Good value

Edit, I did pay duties, and taxes. But brokerage forms filled out correctly, so no brokerage which would be my only gripe ever.
Perfect service dougal cawley on here!

I have not used the tyres, I suspect as I purchased for 5.5 width the treads are more of a rally version. So I should be happy.

Gearbox and cooling sorted, both needed a full rebuild. Now we wait for Coker to ship the XAS!

You are so lucky to have the best looking Elan. Join the club that S4 owners can only dream about.............

Agreed! S3 is the best to my eye, other than a 26R.

If you're looking at an Elan from the outside you are really missing the point. While you can debate the relative and all very good looks of the various versions it is really all about the look and feel over the steering wheel as you turn into a corner :D
