UPDATE !

Since Prodrive didn't have any parts, I called the UK-dealer who leased the car to me to ask if they knew of any cross-drilled discs.

The "engineer" of Subaru confirmed the guess of the Prodrive guy: water with salt (and cold air flowing over the brakes) tends to build a "slime" on the discs.

:idea: The solution suggested: " you have to book in your car so we can check your brakes." (visual check of course !) :roll:

Right... now there is a trick to see my car again ! I am getting the car serviced at Subaru dealer in Finland obviously rather than drive to UK and pay over the odds anyway ! So they didn't see my car for a while...

AND... How the f*** is that going to stop the problem occurring in the future ???! :evil:

:?: Solution :?:

:cen

Why are official dealerships in UK only useful to knock money out of our pockets ?

(Got same problem with my Merc. When I lived in UK, it went into a UK dealer 3 times, never to have the problem solved. Since then, I took the car to Belgium where they would charge 1/3, generally be more generous with the warranty (while they didn't sell the car to me) AND ... THEY WOULD ACTUALLY SOLVE THE PROBLEM ! And I would have a nice weekend topping up with beer, wine, etc...) (Same with Scoob in fact)
