Re: Independent Recommendation

I have just received a price to replace rear brake pads at the main dealer which is £1,140. I was already interested in changing to APEC to reduce dust, but I now have another good reason to change! To be fair, the main dealer is happy to fit pads that I supply for £92 plus the sensor - it is the p...

Are the decals a Jaguar part or from a third party?
I purchased mine from https://www.brakecaliperdecals.co.uk/

They are available in various colours and suitable for high temp applications.

Must have been the week for it

Did mine too

Did you remove the clips with the Jag decal when you painted the front calliper?
If so I assume you renewed the decal?

Re: Warn Brake Pads Warning

Had my 4 year service (at 43,000 miles) a couple of weeks ago. Health check recorded Front Pads @ 7mm & rear @ 4mm left. A few hundred miles later and a warning message has appeared - Brake pads worn. Does anyone know: Is the 4mm reported near to the limit? If so, should it have been advised as a j...

Hi. I’d be interested in how you get on with Mercury as I live in Chelmsford and need to find a good local too. Can you let us know how it goes. Thx!

Same here.... ;)

No towns or villages are named, so you've no idea where you are; only the very major road numbers are ...

Re: Brake pad dust

A quick update re the APEC pads. They are now nicely bedded in, no brake squeal, no brake fade and virtually NO brake dust! Very please with them overall... 😉 Good to hear this. Looking at the photo of your car it has black rims........they hide a lot of brake dust. The true test would be on silver...
