Sorry mate not your fault, but again, someone not making the distinction between MPS4 MPS4s and MPS4’s


I’m guessing you mean the MPS4 or MPS4’s? not the MPS4s

And before anyone says, it’s not pedantic it’s stopping people getting confused. Punctuation saves lives lol

Well, as I meant the MPS4 tyre in plural form, "MPS4s" is correct. As the tyres were not possessive, nor were there any missing letters, apostrophies would've been wholly incorrect. And no I'm not happy about pluralising an acronym, but writing it out long-hand, it is "Michelin Pilot Sport Fours".

Not being pedantic, of course. :-)

Tony.

P.S. It's the ruddy French's fault anyway :-)

Erm yes, ok, thanks Tony, that’s most informative lol But seeing as lots of people ask for ‘advise’ I don’t think they’ll notice that subtle grammar nuance lol

Anyway, my point is, it’s just our way of differentiating between the PS4 and the PS4S

Although I have a question Tony?

If you had actually bought a set of the Michelin Pilot Sport Four ‘S’, would you have said “I’ve bought a set of MPS4Ss?”

Your disputatious and belligerent behaviour has not gone unnoticed.
