    Facelift Brakes and Wheel Bearings

    Yeah I agree Damo Just wish I had stayed with the standard Bridgestones now but they were even more expensive. I jumped at the PS4 and now regret it somewhat. The guy who fitted them did say to me mixing tyres front to back affects MPG and I should replace all 4 and I just laughed at him. He...

    Facelift Brakes and Wheel Bearings

    Swapping audi rotors for bbs reps a bad idea? Pics attached

    I think the rotors are fantastic wheels. Look great and easy to clean. I especially love the deep dish ones on the s5 etc Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
