    Vehicle : Bmw 330d

    Trim : Msport

    Engine : 3.0d

    Year : 2008

    Default Updated phone, rear brakes and repainted calipers

    As above done some work on my vectra.

    First i updated the phone ecu as sometimes my iphone 4s doesn't connect. Had to reprogram phone ecu as if new module. so if you do yours the dealer will need to take a note of the code index. Reconnect the phone to car so far so good.

    Replace rear brakes but cause first set of rear disks the carrier bolts were very tight due to tonnes of locktite from factory. Also typical vectra rear pads worn on the tilt. Refitted all after cleaning brakes for painting.

    Mask and paint all calipers after great advise on a colour match. Hammerite smooth blue. Also cleaned wheels whilst off.

    Very happy with results and after the brake struggle that its all done.

    That blue doesn't look too bad. Might redo mine now you've tried yours first.

    Didn't pick up the phone tonight going home from work.

    I have changed the phone settings to just sync contacts only.

    Wonder if its cause i have such a short trip to work 3 1/2 miles. Might just stop using it unless going out of town.
