Sorry for the late reply....brakes are better than what I think they were originally.....so much so I braked the other week and had some clown go right up the back of me and the car was in the bodyshop for about a week. I would still consider the JCW upgrade but I think I'd have to take a jcw manual out to test the brakes.....could always post up on minitorque and see what happens???
However when my car was in at the bodyshop they did a quality enhancement check which translates as a recall I believe. It's to do with the crankshaft bearing housing. On some of the MCS models the wrong housing was built for a certain batch of engines and I think they recalled all.
Has anyone else had a recall on their 210?
