    Sorry for taking so long, I was typing this up yesterday morning when I decided to go home as I felt ill, just surfaced and found this unposted so,

    Same car as me and those brakes are very good, what are you doing? To start with, try some Black Diamond 12 grove discs and Predator pads in the front, if that is not enough you will need to upgrade to a larger disc system such as Golf 4 R32 system or an aftermarket big disc kit, there are many designed for the PQ34 platform that you can use.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
