Sorry to say but if I was the dealer, I would also say bug off, brakes were fine.

ABS ring, different matter.
Dealers have a duty under the consumer protection act to sell motors that are fit for purpose and safe. Dodgy ABS kit is not safe, they should be fixing that.
problem is was the Abs ring intact when trader sold car ? you have had it 5weeks so he could argue that
Would always try find a small reputable independant garage when looking for repairs as I often hear a lot of multi national garages are keen to part customers of cash ..

My super sonic sonar radar will help me!
Currently in batfink5's garage:
Laguna MKIII 2.0dci dynamique, Clio dynamique tom tom, Vauxhall zafira
