Something not right with my brakes

The disc has lost It's surface, those are cooling vanes inside a vented disc!

I've seen it before, once, and it was down to a faulty disc, but it would also be possible to do it by never changing the discs, and just sticking new pads in repeatedly,

Tipex is right :eek: That alone is more shocking than the condition of the disc :roflmao:

Odd the other side has not gone

Fault in the calliper on that side, leaving the pad on that side sticking on?? :confused:

Christ, I thought this was a car forum :P It's a fairly common trait with floating calipers, the outer-side of the disc experiences greater tangential wear due to the single-sided piston design.

wow - never seen a "disc" like that before. Aside from the noise I bet it's one cool surface very quickly after breaking ;)
