    replied to Drilled brake discs.
    I'm always open to as much info as I can get so thanks all regardless.

    When I say warped, I don't necessarily mean 'warped'. I just class it as such whenever there is a discrepancy on the dial guage outside of tolerance when rotated , to me warped is just a general diagnosis. This could...

    Oh, and I too noticed the 'error' with the 2 drill holes , but it appears it's by design for whatever reason according to the illustration on the site... Perhaps balance? ...

    Thanks for the info I don't track the car and to be honest am puzzled as to how I warped a stock disc in the first place, I very much suspect the surface was compromised from surface deposits and stuck pads that led to hot spots, and eventually, distortion. I would normally get them reface with such...

    I hope so, I suspect the brake issues I've had stem from when I first got the car but Ford were never interested due to the brakes being wear and tear items. The car had a build date of Sept 17 and I got the car may 18 so it had sat a long time in Belgium vhc prior to shipping. There were visible pad...

    Thanks for the info JB . The Discs were 307 all in delivered from AUTODOC, I figured if I've had trouble with Ford oem after just 10k miles then it certainly can't hurt to try third party as I haven't had any troubles with them before. If we were in America replacement rotors and pads are cheap as chips,...

    replied to Recorded Service Book
    The service book is shoddy, as is the holdall, my book was as if it had been left on a shelf in the sun.i remember saying to the dealer 'is this it' when you spend 40k on a car and my missus suzuki swift is a leather bound job.

    Other than being bound to Ford I can't see their reasoning...

    replied to S550- Kumho Ecsta PS7
    Thanks for this info, good to know. I appreciate that high end tyres will in most cases perform better, but I also think the prices get a bit steep after a point.

    I loved the rainsport 2 I had on my old 545i, very good for the money and great in the wet. They've only recently released sizing...

    replied to Brake Calipers
    I'm setting about painting my brembos red in the coming week or two if I get time using VHT real red and re-apply decals and lacquer, I'm taking them off the car to get the best result I can. If you'd like I can send pics of the results and you can see if it's something you'd tackle yourself for the...

    replied to Active exhaust install in UK
    There is an aftermarket exhaust made by x-force that is supposedly decent but I have no first hand experience of it. I think jw racing and gt101 are dealers. Otherwise roush or Ford retrofit but either will be expensive I'm sure.

    started a topic Drilled brake discs.

    Drilled brake discs.

    I haven't been on here in some time but now I'm after some help/info if anyone can, I'd appreciate it.

    I somehow warped a front disc which is obvious using my runout dial guage so I can be sure it's that, and one of my rear discs are quite badly grooved from a knackered/contaminated pad....
