Next job, I've bought a pair of 'Boge' rear shocks...

One of my fetishes, along with leather (interiors, that is....) is to see a nice clean shiny sweep of a brake disc across ALL of the area that it is supposed to be swept........off to the Life shop now.......sale on apparently.....

Since I got rears done a few weeks ago, discs and pads, car stops on a bliddy tanner. Just turned over 30k miles today after after 53.5 months of perfect behaviour of the Rav. Well pleaseded...... :s_thumbsup

It's funny you should say that Kev, I've found that since I've done the brakes 'all round' I have a real thing (issue) of looking at the condition of brake discs on parked cars..it gives you a nice feeling seeing new bright discs , plus of course they now perform so much better. :)
