    still warming up after..................

    doing my brakes today. but I'm well chuffed with the setup i went for. mtec disc's and redstuff pads.

    still got to wait for them to bed in but can notice a big difference already.

    productive end to the week really as it sailed through its mot on Thursday and front/rear brakes changed and sorted. but didn't manage to get a fluid change done as it got dark and very cold.

    Mtec disc's are good. I have used them on quite a few cars now.

    Just got in from the cold myself. Been digging a bit of the garden for a veg patch Looks like I finished just in time as its started snowing
