Well nothing to interesting to report, but I have had the car for nearly a year now (24th) and the the odometer just passed 40K. Thats 7k miles in a year, which given a 3 month lockdown I dont think is too bad. Still on the same tyres and there is plenty of rubber left.

I went to visit my R yesterday and decided to check the brake pad and disk wear (with my new micrometer). So, one wheel off at a time and this is what I found at just under 36k miles.
Pads. All sets have plenty left on them and I took photos to record.
Disk Fronts. Spec: New = 32.6 mm, min = 30.6.
Actual: n/s = 32.0, o/s = 32.1.

Disk Rears. Spec: New = 30mm, min = 28.
Actuals: n/s = 29.2, o/s = 29.2.

I've known for many years my driving style is not hard on brakes but nice to be reassured especially as at last service was told that at next service, due in Oct, I would need new pads and disks all round...
(I ache a bit today though!)

That's reassuring John.  Being kind on brakes does save you £££!

In preparation for spending even more money on my R, I today insured and taxed ready for release from storage.

VED: £580pa

Insurance: £257.70pa to put it back on my multi-car policy (which is halfway through its 12 month period so only actually paid: £127.79).

G3 Service + Optimisation + MOT. Nothing too exciting I'm afraid!

Liberated the R from storage yesterday and this morning had Wheel Alignment done and previously fitted new tyres filled with Nitrogen - princely sum of £41.59. Oh... and I might have had a little run out to get the rust of the disks...
