Thanks Saabguy,

I've nominated you as you always respond to my posts and are really helpful, like my fellow Vel Satis guardian! what was your name again mate?

Anyway, the specialist I'm dealing with handles about 7-8 other Vel Satis in the area plus some Avantines so he really knows what he's talking about. He backed up what you said about not going for aftermarket discs as they don't fit, 3 different ones etc.

The reason I'm getting stung is because my VS requires new pads and discs front and rear, plus it needs a new rear caliper as mentioned, which is 250ish from Renalt.

Once the new brakes all round and new PacPhersons etc are done on the front, I should be one happy VS owner as it's great in all other ways. Engine's fine and very good MPG, interiors grear condition, bodywork's great. Just the blasted wheels, brakes and tyres. But I'm nearly there with it being sorted...

Have a good weekend,
