  1. Just been and purchased new oil filter and sump plug from VW. Thought I had some Castrol oil in the garage but upon looking it’s all gone. Bit of a bummer as it was on offer at Costco before Christmas as well (under £17 inc vat for 4 litres). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Did you read that on Facebook? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. What paint did you use? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Yes.....pity they didn’t do a matching rear disc. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Wish I had fitted CS discs instead of grooved discs (MTEC). Not having any problems with the MTEC discs by the way. They work a treat. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. You should change dealership, those are incorrect. Front discs are 30mm (27mm minimum) - thickness Rear are 22mm (20mm minimum) AFAIK. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Interest rate isn’t that low, 4.9% APR (also looking at Mini JCW’s; Mini’s own finance is 3.9%) - however again, we can get it around £4-5k cheaper. These are on brand new factory orders, not existing stock, although used cars are also available. Wife works for a bank (commercial banking), they have a “Car scheme” which allows them to purchase new / used cars (some manufacturers offer fairly hefty discounts, others do not). BMW had their M135 on offer when it first came out. She opted out of the company car scheme a few years ago as the company car scheme shrunk from pretty much any car on the market (and it was anything.....if the cost was above your allowance you could just pay the difference), to low emission vehicles under a certain CO2. The cash price of the A3 is just under £30k (RRP is around £38k I believe), so 21% discount if a cash sale without PCP. Looked at Mk8R’s, these aren’t cheap. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Yeah I’ve read that. Makes life easier as those m14 carrier bolts are supposed to be a pig. Piston pushes back as well, only needs winding back on the manual hand brake. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Done a comparison against cheapest Carwow quotation. Carwow is £5,500 dearer (total cost of ownership). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. £3000 cash advance payment 36 x £294 £19600 final payment No deposit option equates to about +£250 extra on the overall costs (monthlies + final), obviously monthlies are higher. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Thanks Jon Total cost inc interest is £33k - not bad for a £38k car. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. The discs have a minimum thickness (can’t recall the exact measurement). My OEM front discs and pads needed replacing at approx 30k miles. No point fitting new pads to an old lipped disc imo. Either wait until you replace the discs or do the discs at the same time. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Changed the discs and pads (front) 18 months ago. Will be doing the rear once the weather warms up a little. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Or just put some scruffs on and do it properly. [emoji3] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Easy DIY if you have a few basic tools. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
