United Kingdom 2007 Range Rover Vogue TDV8 Tonga Green

Nice one mate. Mine is three quarters of its way through a refresh / refurb and I did not think it was possible to have spent as much as I have! Still it will be great when it is back on the road. It can drive me to my second job that I will need to complete the works! Very Happy Now my GSX-R wants in on the action with racehead bearings doing.... never ends. 2003 VW Golf V6 4motion

I'm thinking after x3 years in storage I'm going to replace the brakes all round , complete set. Discs, pads and calipers. I just fitted rear pads as they were down as low on the last mot there was a good 3 mil left lower than I would like. I checked them all at the same time the rear calipers pushed back OK I should have checked the front calipers for ease of movement but didn't Rolling Eyes. Some years ago I fitted groved and drilled discs which iv come to hate .
Advanced factors have some decent stuff and there service is fantastic. Also need to find a slight blow on the exhaust hopefully just the seal on the front box.

Head bearings will be fun iv just fitted new to my DAS bikes as part of my winter services.

Wow just checked pads and discs in 2014 the year I got the car I did a complete overhaul then but no calipers

Bit of a rattle on cold start this morning it went away almost immediately I'm thinking 1 of the lifters is draining back over night. Time for oil and filter change next.

Yeah agreed, I am going to do the same with the brakes. Yeah Head bearings will be a joy.... just wondering whether the garage roof is actually up to the task. Thinking on balance possibly not and using that as a very lazy excuse to farm the job out! Good luck with the P38. 2003 VW Golf V6 4motion

Just the feel of them and I'm sure I can feel the groves dragging when braking.
