Insurance time

Firstly the MMC disks are now a record time of about 4 hours thanks to the SELOC classifieds.

Anyway - its that great time of year when the car insurance is due for renewal. A-plan have been very competitive until this year but Chris Knott managed to shave another £30 off their price. Insurance total this year - £429. Bargain.

Hopefully the weather holds out a little longer before its time to get the hardtop out.

Bye bye MMCs!

Nothing too major but I had some vibration when using the brakes last week. I was bored so called the AA to take a look - it turns out I'd killed one of the rear pads and it was starting to rub the disc.

Anyway - since I had MMC discs on the rear I thought it easier to change the rear discs and pads. £160 to Eliseparts for new steel discs and greenstuff pads, £100 to a local garage to fit them and all is well again.

I've got the old MMCs up for sale on SELOC since its not that badly scored and theyre a bit hard to come by so I might get a few quid back.

Not long before its time to get the hardtop out again for winter ":-("
