    Default Discs & Pads on Facelift

    Well Vectra flew through MOT thankfully today when i went to pick it up the service manager said all Ok brakes etc ok. I said I hoped they were as I only fitted new ones yesterday. When I looked at wear chart for pads and discs it said 98% left? Blimy I said I have used 2% in 8 miles yet previous front pads had lasted for 30k miles

    Don't take any notice - it's a visual check and he probably didn't want to put down 100% or something silly like that...

    I just thought it amusing seeing that i have painted the edges and the part between the wheel and the new discs +calipers red so they stood out like a sore thumb as every thing was painted up and not a mark on the discs as i only used them 6 times getting there
