    Hi all

    Is it a common problem for the brembosĀ  to squeek,we’ve took it back to Bristol street motors as this has happened from say 1 months from having the car

    First thing we got told was need to wear the takes in so ckme back after a thousand miles on the clock which we did

    Then they tested it and funnily enough it never happened to them not even. On the test drive

    Took it back about another 1000miles later and I took a video clip of it happening so they took it Abit more serious and dismantled the brakes and said they’ve fixed it and said the brakes were really coarse

    But now we are on around five thousand and it’s coming back again

    Do i go back or is it one of those things I just to get over..

    It,s in the rs handbook that they squeak due to the compound,and they shit your wheels up a treat with dust.Will replace with some aftermarket pads later.

    mine gave a few squeaks until I did two 100 to zero hard stops that had them smoking like a fooker. Since then ( last 5000 miles ) not had a sound out of them. The discs did change colour after the hard stops but are back to looking brand new now !



    No nothing.

    No Mods. No rockers. Just a chunky knob.

    No tackiness.

    Std as Ford intended, but with a space saver wheel and jack and nuts and wheel brace. oh.. and flaps, a man has got to have flaps.

    Innit?
