Hi Ian, Every bush on the car has been done, and they are dark yellowy brown colour. But as stated they were on the car when i bought it, so i have no idea of the make. Even the PO could not remember the make, only the fact he wished he had not bothered, due to the hardish ride and vibration.... Not major.... But there. Tyre wise it has got new dunlop sp3 which i fitted hoping for a better ride, but it remained the same.
Dark yellowy brown is definitely not Superflex, Tony.
On the subject of tyres...
My mother used to have a 2002 Peugeot 307 that had Dunlop tyres (195/65x15 I think) from new.
When it needed new tyres she bought Vredestein replacements and the difference was striking...
whilst the car drove the same it was much much quieter. That was before the time of comparison labels,
so I don't know if the said labelling scoring would have pointed this out?
I always go for tyres with the best wet weather performance and don't really bother about the road noise score.
For the Sprint I may fit Michelins and furthermore they are made in Britain (at almost 1000, Michelin is Dundee's largest employer).
Also, (for the Sprint) I have Dynamat lightweight soundproofing and CBS (Car Builder Solutions) carpet.
I am hoping this will make for a improvement over the standard car but won't know how much difference
because I will have changed so many other things as well and didn't ever actually drive the car in standard form.
