    You haven't had the full front brakes done (i.e. discs, callipers and pads)?

    no offer of replacement brake.
    i guess different serial numbers qualify for different fixes.

    Hey jerseypaul,

    The product improvement for the RS 3, which includes the brake fix, IS applicable to your car!

    Unfortunately, the answers to this issue are now getting somewhat fragmented so here are two 'threads' you need to go look at:

    1) Thread: Software update. See Post #3

    2) Thread: Off to have the brakes fixed. See Post #170

    And here jerseypaul, is what the brake upgrade looks like - as on Vito's car, and each and every car that's been in my garage has had the SAME modification: brake discs, brake calipers - with anti-vibration mountings, brake caliper supports, and brake pads:
