Re: Rear disc and pads gubbed

Jay cee!! When I first looked at your pic I thought the outer circumference had cracked away , but obviously it is the shield behind. If I remember correctly you live in Scotland, don't you? Near the coast?? It looks to me like salt water corrosion. The rim is unbelievable at such low mileage. If th...

Re: Front Lower Spoiler

I suggest you name and shame the dealer on this forum. They should not be allowed to get away with this.

Re: New member - which engine

If you are paying your own money and don't need to tow. Diesel is a huge NO-NO. DERVS are depreciating like a brick in a vacuum. You will loose shed loads unless you keep it 'til it dies.
