Ok thanks for that. Just trying to get an idea on what's considered normal. I know most people I speak to say theirs will sticks little when left a few days. Thinking about it, I moved the car myself by foot than start it up so maybe engine power would mean it would be less noticeable? I'm just trying to make sure the brakes are freed up if left a few days so rather than start the car up and move it I've just been releasing the hand brake and pushing it with my foot a little to move it a little.

My old T reg Clio never stuck bad over the years I had it so I'm hoping the over adjusted hand brake on this one was actually the main reason for it sticking that time to the point it couldn't be moved.
Maybe I should invest in some wheel chocks for over the colder months just in case I'm not moving it for a few days?!
