    Long story short, warped a set of discs within 2 months so bought a new set of Brembos.
    Fitted them today but when I spin the wheel I got this (watch video)

    1 Wheel seems to be catching on the pads when I spin it pointing to distortion of the hub?
    The bearings are fine, no play at all.

    Can you position the disc in a different position to see if it improves per chance?

    Or is it one of the grub screw mounted jobbies

    for gits and shiggles it has to be worth a try to see if you can improve upon it

    Moved the disc to several different positions, same run out at some place on the disc each time (marker pen helped)

    2 sets of out of spec discs from 2 different retailers, what's the chance of that?!

    I'm going to go and look at an A6 LeMans next week.
