    My disks were due for replacement and I was going to get the ATE disks, but then found some new Bosch disks for a ridiculously cheap price, so I got those. So far all good.

    It depends on how quickly you need a car - I think prices for 2nd hand cars will remain inflated for a while yet (6 months at least) because of the continued shortage on brand new cars.

    If the price difference between old tyres and brand new ones is $200 then its a no brainer in my opinion.

    The Continental is designed to be a bit quieter and smoother ride, whereas the Goodyear F1...

    Is this place trying to sell these tyres as brand new, or are they selling them openly as 2nd hand/old stock tyres? If second hand, then fair enough, but if they are trying to sell 3-5 year old tyres...
