Looking good.  Keep an ear on the transmission for any odd noises. 

These cars can be sensitive to tyres, and especially wide variations in tread depth.  There have been an increasing number of broken diffs occurring and tyres might be a contributing factor.  It's still only a few but.....

As long as the depths remain close together you should be fine, but if they vary a lot front to rear then you need to be monitoring the car.  Changing as a set seems to reduce the likelihood of any issues.
