ditto.

had to google them...

from their website
https://www.zestinotyreusa.com/

"  Zestino is a new tire brand intended for motorsports– from drifting to any form of Road Racing. The design and production technology is from Japan. It has been proven in many racing environments with podium results in many countries around  the world. "

sounds like a nitto wannbee ?

adens tyres sells them in nz alongside brands like linglong, windforce, greenmax, laufenn (another new one - sounds like laffin  ?)

I've noticed a ton of Maserati Levante's getting around now.  Honestly what a massive disappointment styling wise, looks more or less like an Infiniti FX45.


Also saw for the first time ever today a Citroen XM station wagon in Newmarket.

No argument here. I had my S4 parked next to a late model S3 sedan a couple of months back and it didn't look at all dated in that company.

Mind you, that is the beauty of the VAG evolutionary styling rather than wild styling changes model to model.
The 'bright young things ' call it boring or 'photocopy' styling but for anyone with an ounce of nouse, it is a great process
