    any members on here from sheffield?

    Hi folks, total noob here.

    Just picked up a mk4 astra 1.7dti today for the wife but it's due a new cambelt and a service.

    Can anyone recommend a decent independant vauxhall specialist in Sheffield I can take it to?

    Dont want to be ripped of by the local stealer.

    Also. not sure if the rear shoes need changing as the brakes feel really poor. Is the mk4 dti known for poor brakes or is it just mine?

    Any help would be great.

    Cupraman.

    Welcome to AOC bud

    To be fair, standard 4 stud 256mm discs really are poor! best thing to do is convert to 5 stud 308mm

    Thanks for the info mate. My Leon has 4 pot brembo's on it so wasn't sure if it was me being used a big brake setup.

    Might get the rear shoes looked at during the service as Its not holding well on the handbrake when doing a hill start.

    Although I've only owned the car since 10am this morning I'm liking the astra already
