    Got the car on Emos ramps today as my brakes were grinding so was a good opportunity to get the Brembo's on:

    I think the pads were a little low:

    Unfortunately the brembo's wont go on, even with Emo's magic touch so he's having them for his Splitty and in exchange getting me the correct caliper carriers for the 312mm discs.

    Dam that boot look sweet but the rim are a little shocking for £200 and it's a shame about the brakes.

    The brembos stud pattern are too close to the audi pattern so you cant get brackets to go between. Also i would have to have a huge offset wheel to clear them.....
    Im gonna have the wheels redone elsewhere i think...

    But it was obviously worse than first thought as it decided to part with the car on the A12 earlier. Bodged it back on now but off to Audi for a quote tomorrow.

    Heh, reminds me of a time in macdonalds many years ago....

    I had to open the drivers door to collect my food as the electric window fuse blew when i tried to roll it down, handed the food to my brother, drew forward, selected reverse and while looking over my left shoulder reversed back into a parking bay.

    Unfortunately i hadnt shut my door, so as i swung the steering over, the drivers door swung open.... Luckily it didnt open too far, but it opened far enough to scrape an inch or two down the side of the mondeo in the next space over.

    I thaught "oh ****", stopped, selected first and was about to nail it from the car part with the "full bore" throttle position. Then i noticed the drive thru employees staring, the folk in the carpark staring, the folk in the restaurant staring, and thaught ok i better not. Parked properly and sat eating my food, and waited for the person to come out.

    Older woman finally came out and i got out to explain what happened. She looked at it and went "ach dont worry about it, its not thru the paint, and i drove it into a lamp post last week and stoved the tailgate in anyway..."

    PHEW!

    Somebody ripped my front bumper off on one side and destroyed the nylon adjuster on the bumper bracket in an NCP and just left it without a note or anything. I had to fork out for a new bumper and bracket.

    Wish I'd caught them!!

    I hope you get it sorted without too much trouble Drizz.
