Brocky, at 19k do you notice the fronts worn more on the inside (owing to the CS running a bit of camber)?

Not changing the fronts at 19k?

Do you drive like miss daisy?

About 14ish for fronts normally on my gtd's, my gti had an early bath at 11k, but probably wouldnt have made more than 13k
:grin:
Did Miss Daisy drive...?  :smug:  :tongue:

Far from it, Fred!  Though, around 60-70% of that mileage is motorway and dual-carriageway, rather than twisty bits.  The tech also said that my pads are about 50% worn, if that redeems any of my cred...?  Those Clubby brakes are so good, it'd be rude to not use them to their full potential!  :evil:

Haven't really noticed, Exonian.  I don't have a depth gauge either, so couldn't tell you.  Sorry.  Is it something you've noticed with yours?

That is what they did to mine about 2 weeks ago, and so far so good.
I had the "better grease" done on mine about six months in and that lasted about a month before the creaking came back.  Hopefully the techs are better informed this time.

Mine is running PS4S at around 11k miles and I haven’t noticed any uneven wear but it would be hard to spot unless the wheels were on full lock as it would be the inner shoulder that was affected.

Which is a long winded way of saying I’ve not checked properly.

It’s now on the “to do” list.
