    I got and used both the gtechniq and gyeon trim restorer on my old plastic covered Peugeot and both worked well and lasted ages. I would recommend either

    Whilst I was checking over the car. I used the brake thickness tester on the front pads. Twice. Then went and got a ruler because I didn't believe it. But tis true. My front pads are down to 7mm after 5000 miles.

    Can't remember if they started at 17 or 22mm. But either way I expected more than that from em. Wonder if it's the slotted discs that cheese grated them?

    I stand corrected. Ecp reckon they start at 16mm. They are Pagid, off the 2.5l Audi TT. Hopefully they've worn so quick because of the bedding in material. Guess I'll see how quick the next 4mm goes. On the bright side they are only 40ish a set.

    Yeah. Same with my OEMs. But then again OEM seem to start much thicker as well. Guess it's cause of the toaster like design.

    Yeah the dust is insane. Everyone thinks my wheels are anthracite. But they are actually bronze. Yeah, stage 2+ with the DB9 calipers.

    Let’s all chip in so @Legojon can have this.

    I’d love to see how many miles from a tank of V Power that engine would give

    Haha, I'm up for that!! Will it be like Doms car from fast n furious?

    I'm wondering exactly that. LOL. And also worrying about turbo lag. Maybe for my third mid-life crisis... which I don't feel is that far away.
