Epic fail.
In the garage getting repaired.
Costs more than car worth.

Love the new spelling of "reservoir" in the advisories. Just can't get the staff these days. Hope the repairs are to a better standard. Head lamps are easy. :)

They do seem to score easily compared to other vehicles I've owned. The pads start life quite thin too, so my policy has been to fit new discs and pads at the same time.

I expected the disks to last forever on the rear. Minimal work to do and I would never expect them to get as hot as the front.
The handbrake requires less force & the first pull is enough. So far.

The 20 quid 55Watt driver/35W 6200K HID dip & 36W (3 Amp) Main LED's max glare and little practical use. Have not failed the MOT. LOL.
Lights do appear lower despite the full span of adjustment on the lower dash wheel. Off to read Haynes and check against the wall in the evening.

Non Std HID’s and LED’s should have been a fail.
Cheers Col.
