Hi all,

Finally pulled my finger out and signed up.

Took delivery 8th May 2017 of my black 190 SEL, now on 76k miles.

First set of front tyres lasted 30k, then rears 60k! Replaced them all at that point to Michelin Cross Climates which have great wet weather performance. Have yet to test in snow, since I got stuck last year in a three foot snow drift! (admittedly I was a little ambitious...)

I just need to reformat a picture and will upload as my avatar
Just had my old Edition collected and the rears were just legal and the second set of fronts were borderline and that's after 34k miles. No idea how you managed to achieve 30k out of fronts and 60k on backs.
Not a clue - must not have been trying hard enough! :D

I do predominantly motorway miles for work, so this be something to do with it. It's serviced a couple of times a year and nothing was picked up. They were the original Hancooks

More effort is required, mine were the Hankook tyres too, my journeys are manly on fast twisty B roads which might be the reason.

"Fast" and "twisty B roads" are words I would not expect to see in the same sentence. Perhaps "manly" is an appropriate misspelling?

Hi,
I was so keen I registered on the site before I actually got the car. My experience is this type of site is extremely useful so thanks for having me. I do now have the car - a 2018 2l diesel Edition in velvet red with 24k. Spending an inordinate amount of time getting my head around all the bells and whistles !

Och Aye the noo, Bob,
Welcome to the forum.
I don't go off road and I admit I have mixed feelings about the leccy handbrake.
+More space and neater. Applies brakes if about to nudge anything whilst parking.
- Not so controllable and a few probs reported.
