That's both intriguing and concerning. Given that your car (and mine) and both from 2017, how many miles have you managed to clock up to wear out a pair of discs in such a short period? Many main dealers will start pressuring for new ones somewhere around 40,000 miles (my previous Audi A3). In fact, at every annual service I was told my discs would need changing in 10,000 miles. That happened about 5 times :roll: . I never did change them in the end and they were perfectly good up until I got rid of it with mileage around 95,000. Add to that, I still had the same pads with plenty to spare.

That's around 33,000 miles. I have my car on a 4 year PCP deal and I do 10,000 miles a year. There's no way I'm agreeing to change my discs before it goes back. Like I said earlier, main dealers push to have the work done but I would question whether it's necessary at such a low mileage or get a second opinion before wasting your money. That's just the way I would approach it.

That must be an annoying additional expense. Very unusual. Good luck with the fix.

Thanks Morgan. Where are you located? I will get up there one day even if it isn't this year. Looks beautiful. And I curse the rain! I also ride motorcycles and it rains too often here in Germany.
