That's great to hear. It was nippy before when you pulled out of that layby before Petworth.

Had a flat tire last night. Called RAC who said an hour. Three hours later still no sign. Considering they were told I was on my own in a deserted car park in the middle of a town Centre on a Friday night - absolutely disgusting service. Complaint being done :)

That is pretty appalling, particularly as they originally told you one hour! Go for it with the complaint (y)

Took my scooter for its first service last Saturday. It also had a few issues to sort under warranty. Picked it up today and after a little hiccup it’s all good :)

I've been with RAC since 1999, every year renewed, although prices keep going up. For the last couple of years have seriously considered going else where. Only used them 2 times in 20 years, so I'm not a high den and user, surely I shouldn't be paying more than a new person joining.

Anyway, the time I used them they did come out in around 30mins. Although I told the call center it was a Pontiac Firebird, they thought it was a motorbike. They then passed it on to a local company to take me from Cambridge to back home.

If say something caused them to wear like that, heavy braking? Was it used by a sales rep? Foot on the accelerator or foot on the brake, nothing in between? Is it an auto? That's more wear on the brakes.
Notice the rings line up with the holes, I wonder if the holes caused the pads to wear weird, and with weird pattern on the pads caused the discs to go like that.
I have drilled and slotted on mine, never seen that pattern, perhaps the slots create an even wear?

Both front discs and pads the same think it's how it came from audi not seen aftermarket like these but might be wrong is UK standard and brakes work very well.
