    If you are starting to question the discs then pop the car along to an MOT centre and see if they can squuze you in for a brake test

    If the discs are warped in any way then there will be a fluctuation shown on the testing equipment.

    Have you had to stop sharply for anything? Cat dog person jump out in front of you making you slam on the brakes?

    After driving, does the wheel with more dust on it feel warmer than the other side?

    Ok, back outside again. Left feels more hotter and has more brake dust!

    I cant tell if it's me looking for a reason though. One definetly has more brake dust.

    Oh man, also, the steering wheel can feel a bit wobbly when flooring it. I put this down to a new alignment and waiting for the tyres to scrub in again. Can this a sign of a dodgy caliper?

    FFS, does this mean the disc could be knackered now ?

    Ok, had a chance to throttle it a bit tonight as there was no traffic. Braking from 110 (kmh............. :p) down to 30 sharpishly makes the whole chassis judder.

    It's not really the steering vibrating but more of the whole car vibrating or something. Bushes are brand new, something like 500 miles old aswell Indy checked checked the rest of the suspension and assured me all other bits and bobs were fine.
