Clarification: sidewall, not the “tyre height”, as it can be easily confused with tyre’s OD (as comments had shown).

Make sure you do wheel alignment when or shortly after you put a new set of tyres on, otherwise, if it is out of whack too much, the tyres would wear out rather fast.

Coasting in gear is more efficient, because modern FI vehicles turn off fuel delivery on overrun condition (RPM are higher than idle with no throttle applied), whereas while coasting in neutral the vehicle consumes fuel as the engine is idling (and idling has other negative implications for fuel efficiency and maintenance long term). Search this site, there were several discussions about it.

What do you mean by “number plate”? If you mean licence plate, most cars for sale would not have it. And how does one go about determining its authenticity, whatever that is? Also, elaborate why do you recommend that specific service, and note your affiliation to it, please.

While this is a valid question, I think it falls way beyond the scope of MV Maintenance & Repair. Correct me if I am wrong.
