WHAT'S YOUR STORY?
We're always looking for stories about our members and their cars so don't be shy and get in touch.
Good Morning ,

Last month we exposed a horror story from a member which we just felt we had to share. It involved tyres. I know. A rather boring part of our cars anatomy which unless you have a puncture you spend little time observing.

The story starts like many with an innocent email from a member (who will remain nameless due to the rather embarrassing outcome) asking for advice and information on tyre sizes following a puncture. I replied with the requested specification. A few hours later she emailed back saying she'd looked at her flat tyre and it has 145/80/R12 written on the side and not the 165/70/R12 I had specified. Now, like many of you reading this she had little if no idea of what these numbers referred to and more to the point the importance of the 145 figure against the 165? Well keep awake at the back and take note because this is the TYRE WIDTH in Millimeters. This means she'd been running around on tyres which was 20mm too narrow! The tyres fitted to her Figaro where principally designed for using on TRAILERS not cars. And the nightmare got worse as now she now had the addition cost to replace all four tyres. See our guide below.

And the winner is...
In August we ran a caption competition and thanks for all the contributions the winner was "The fuel consumption does suffer a bit, but the radio reception is tons better !!!!!"  See below and congratulations to Louise Fig who wins a 25 Figaro Shop Voucher.

How the club started

My son 'Daniel' had always wanted a Figaro having seen the car at our local garage when he was just 16. After saving for a number of years (plus a small contribution from his mum and dad!) he brought an emerald green model in June 2008.

Following the purchase we searched on the internet for a club in the hope we could attend events with other owners but were amazed that no club existed... So the Figaro Owners Club was born!  We decided to build a website and forum which took 6 months and on the 1st March 2009 we pressed the 'publish button' and waited to see if anyone wanted to join? Within a week we had 10 members, a month 35 and a year 478 members.


Today the club has around 1,600 members worldwide in countries such as New Zealand, Japan, Australia, USA, Canada, Germany, Spain, France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Sweden and many more countries...

Thanks to all our supporters and members for their help and encouragement throughout our journey.

Warmest Regards
