      Sounds more likely as that's what I had. Vibration when braking especially from speed and felt like it kangaroo'd to a stop on occasions. Mines a 61 plate and ended up being done as a good will gesture at 27000 miles

        They are for 3 years or older which would apply to the OP. Well spotted eliteman!

          I dont think they would charge you for the test if you bought discs/pads from them. the offer at the moment seems decent as long as there not the same discs..



          Just a thought...will they put the same discs as the original ones, dont want to be changing them again in 2 years time

                      Thanks Pete.



                      I`m in Huddersfield so not too far really, I`ll be fine doing the front its just the back I may struggle with but they wont need changing for a few months yet..

                        No need for a computer with the rears.

                          Electronic brake requires it to be connected to a diagnostic device to rewind the calipers I've been told



                          Not with the insignia. I think it is the case with some VAG cars though.
