    phew!

    driving back from work today, just about reached my drive and there was the most horrific metallic grinding noise from somewhere under the car =8-(
    ended up getting the Audi/RAC recovery guy out cos i didn't want to drive her to the Silverlink, fortunately it turned out to be nowt more than a little stone stuck between the brake plate and caliper or something. thought the goddamn exhaust or the quattro had fallen off from the noise it ws making! :-D

    If you reverse and dab the brakes a few times while reversing it usually frees the stone.

    the guy said the plate (or whatever!) has grooves in and the stone should've dislodged itself in due course, but he just gave it a poke w/ a screwdriver or something and knocked it out.

    Same thing happened to my wife in her A5 Cabriolet, a Small Stone stuck in-between the wheel and the Tyre and made a Horrendous noise !

    deja vu. got another grind noise from the back, got the RAC guy on the way. hopefully just another bit of grit/salt in the wheels.
    don't get me started on the state of the roads....

    tell you what though, i love those wheels on the Dynamik but if they're gonna cause me this much bother i'm gonna think hard about trading them in.


    EDIT : aye, *** gravel again.
