    Hello, This week I’ve noticed some cuts on my front left tyre - does anyone have any ideas what might cause this kind of damage? The tyres themselves are up to 45,000km - they’ve above the required tread, but they will need to be replaced soon. So between now and then, is this kind of damage safe?

    The car has the 193HP engine, vin checks it out, but it's got the circular OBD-I connector under the bonnet, and not the OBD-II connector under the dashboard.
