    Default Mine failed MoT too...

    ...luckily it was just on a leaky rear brake caliper at the banjo union. Exactly where I disconnected it 9 days ago when i changed all my discs and pads...

    So, change of seals and a quick bleed later and my 314mm brakes now feel like they should have when I originally fitted them at Christmas...

    I WILL end up smashing my nose off the windscreen if I'm not careful...

    Glad you have got your motor sorted. Move your seat back a bit then you will be further away from smashing your nose against the windscreen..........

    Well I'd never been convinced about them since I fitted the originals I got with the calipers and carriers off eBay, even with the Goodridge hoses and 5.1 fluid they didn't seem to be a huge improvment but i decided to let them bed in a bit as they had been in the outside weather for a while...

    In the end I just got new discs and pads all round from VX for 155 squid and with this leak sorted it means the hydraulics actually work and my god are they an improvment...

    Recommended to anyone needing new front brakes or worried about crashing into the person in front...
