Don't be. The rears are 225 on 16s and the fronts 205 on 15s!  


I meant the tyre pressures but seeing as the wheels are that different, I see your point. Muppet

Does anyone else have a moment of fear induced hesitation before they open this thread after Mark's updated it?

Welcome to the world most of us live in....except we don't need to check to know all is well.  

Good news though, I'm pleased it's working as it should and you're able to enjoy it.

I'd still do a physical check even if I had the electronic means to check it.

I (electronically, it's the only way) check the oil level in the Boxster every couple of months (2-3,000) miles as it does use a little, around a litre between services (20,000 miles).   Other than that, all I check is tyre pressures on both cars every 6-8 weeks.

It's about time you had this stuff sent to your smart phone Martin, so you can have instant, real-time, data on your tyre pressure and oil level.

Then he could carry out a study and let us know if fuel economy was affected by oil level and how much your economy is spoilt per psi of underinflation

I quite like the idea of it being on an app, but I can get both of those in real time through the OBC and I'm a long way from being the level of geek that Tim suggests!  I am interested in high level stats (distance/costs/mpg), but nothing more than that.

There's already an app called Boxtstapp, available on iOS and Android that does this, records the amount of time the roof is down, has links to MOR radio stations, and will direct you to the nearest hairdressers at the touch of a button.

Is that the one that tells you where to find buildings with large reflective windows?
