Re: Announcement: New recall for R3s

Surely stopping and starting a few times over a short distance with a low level in the tank is a bit different to a drive where braking/accelerating/cornering for a long distance with a full tank is likely to a exhibit a different result if there is a leak. :-k

Re: Brake squeal

You shouldn`t have lots of brake dust to that extent with new pads and discs be wary that you have genuine pads as counterfeit pads were found to have all sorts of ingredients in the compound not saying that is affecting yours just something to bear in mind,

Few things I need to change, get the chrome grills and door handles off, also the front splitter is too low and the eye brows are just gash.
Are the door handles just stick on covers? :-k

Just be aware that you may get pulled up come MOT time on LED sidelights. Mine have gone through fine 5 years straight, but a fussy tester might take issue with them.

What is the problem with the LED`s - I have had them in for 13 years without MOT issues. :-k
