Had to get the front brake pads and rotors replaced yesterday after a nasty grinding noise emerged during braking, and the brake pedal became semi unresponsive. Turns out the rotors were warped and worn almost to the pillar parts in the middle. $308 to resolve.

Cars are strawberry floating expensive. Ugh.


They're called strawberry floating discs, mate. GTFO with that american slang :capnscotty:
