    Strewth, browsing for the price of discs and pads has made me come over all faint. The Black Diamonds you mentioned seem a steal compared to the price of some makes, such as Tarox. I may need to do much more reading as half of these names are new to me. Coming from bikes my list is/was EBC...

    Newbie with 9-5 2.3 - Snafu or Fubar?

    Hi everyone, I am the new owner of a 2001 9-5 2.3 SE. Last week that would have included "proud" as well. It seems I have a car that has succumbed to the "sludge" issue that I have since read so much about. The car pinged me and lost mucho power despite me topping it up with synthetic oil...
