official price list here is 17653 pounds for GT incl. Xenon and registering.

i dont know if you guys can imagine road quality here.. it is really bad compared to UK.. but i am going not for 19-s... but 17-s for summer.

i know, looks suffer. but another round of alloys and winter tires for the same amount offered. so summer alloys will be in good shape at least.

our winters are like -20C normally and 4 months of DEEP snow

I can - I have driven there.

There are some good bits - at least one motorway heading south-east-ish out of Tallinn.

Not too different to Poland... I would say that Estonianan roads are better than in Latvia and Lithuania though. There at times I have had to drive with the central white lines under the middle of the car so as to have all wheel on tarmac!

yeah and we have 350 road kills per year and 1.4 million people only in whole country.
roads are better than in russia or latvia but
last year i took a trip from estonia to vence through hungaria and from venice to greece through croatia, montenegro, macedonia and albania.. those roads there better quality!

anyway, i wanted to state out that our Honda dealer even SUGGESTS to change to 17s.
i really wonder if **** in UK driver CTR on 17s????

hm, not paying so much attention to them as to the blond girls but i guess we have all the same bodyparts as you do there
estonian man is usually very classic, modest, slowthinking hardworking moneyloving country horse.

but when they sit into their cars they turn lunatics often and kill themselves and others.
