    BUT he keeps wanting to do my car robbimac, and without offering a pensioner reduction :notme:

    If he only knew the number of cars of cleaned/polished...

    During the time I'd driven to Manchester and back I'd have done it myself (sorry N8, respect for your work), and have money in the bank for more than a couple of fresh lobsters on the plate...

    I DO NOT have a day job, robbimac....:moa:


    44-hours and counting... :thumbsup:

    But this cornflower blue colour is (for us) OTT!

    However, full credit to DK Engineering for ordering:

    1) I would not have ordered this colour at point of order!

    2) But would I change it now? Same answer... NO!

    The colour IS (for me) OTT!

    It does change amazingly! And I DO NOT know how Audi/VW have been able to managed this non-metallic/Pearlescent colour, really!

    But on Monday next, I'll be washing it over, carefully...

    I'm cleaning mine tomorrow (needs must). No it won't stay clean, but it is too dirty right now and I'm jynxing the weather and changing to summer boots tomorrow morning...

    Having looked at distance required to travel to get there (and back); have decided to go the night before.

    Weather looks like"quattro" country...

    See you all on Sunday

    So tonight we went from these grumbly, warped Brembo discs:

    [​IMG]

    To these lovely AP discs and Pagid RS pads:

    [​IMG]

    All set for the weekend ahead:

    [​IMG]

    I'll do a longer write up on the discs and fitting when I get a chance. Only one minor issue with the disc guards but other than that this was a remarkably straight forward job, which isn't always the case with after market parts. I weighed the parts and according to my calculations each disc set up is 4kg lighter than the OEM parts so an 8kg diet is a good gain. Really impressed with Dave Brown too, he answered my request for advice about the disc guard at 8.30 on a Friday night!

    We're heading up North in the morning so see you all there on Sunday.

    Like the new brake setup. When they release the brake squeal mod, will you put it all back to standard so you can get rid of the warped discs for some nice shines new one? And then store them

    That is what happens to the carriers when you take the standard chocolate discs on track. Boy do those carriers get hot. All you hear is bang, bang, bang as the various metals contract at different rates when cooling. No question the OEM Brembo 370mm set up looks good but in reality it was built to a price and Audi could have done much better/lighter.

    Now I know you like it dirty, here is a pic just for you, this is the inside of one of the OEM discs after a track day. If you're about 10K miles plus in the RS3 check your inner brake pads (as also reported by Bilen) they seem to wear much more quickly than the outer pad.

    Crikey!...looks like the missus's frying pan!

    I know you love the track MBK, but I'd be looking to protect/seal those new sexy disc carriers with some GTechnique wheel/alloy sealer, might be worth a try?...I can bring some on Sunday if you like and you can apply it? (really easy wipe on wipe off) as long as they are clean. (which I doubt on Sunday)

    Myself and Vito are meeting up at Charnock Richard and driving down to this, Who else we meeting up along the way?

    Would a stop off at Lymm services be good for anyone wanting to convoy along with us?
