    Default Car serviced today, What a differance..

    Had the veccy serviced yesterday but did not really drive it until today, It has been a bit sluggish and hesitant but after a full service Air/Oil and fuel filters, new oil (5w-30 magnatec).
    The fuel filter was black it looked like it had been in there for the 50000 miles the car has done.

    The car feels and drives great, back too her old self.

    I also replaced the front discs and pads as the old ones where rusted and making a nasty noise.

    Drilled and grooved from Ebay £85

    They are small discs on a big car, the standard ones fade badly when hot, but these with the mintex pads are a great improvement

    Will be painting them as soon as i can, i needed to get them fitted quickly as i need the car daily. I only noticed the the company does pre-painted Black or Gold discs after i got them.

    Yeah I seen them, I like the idea of the black and the contacts parts will no doubt come back through, but think the gold would be too much...
