Grinding brakes

Hi all

had my gp in at Arnie at Ayr the other day for a few wee jobs. The brakes have been as noisy as hell, grinding/grating noise,which is very loud, since I got the car three weeks ago. Service dept checked brakes and said that the discs were rusty and cleaned them up.

Advised me that if it continued that I should return. Will do so next week as the new trim they fitted on the dash at the heater was warped and continues to sit 3 or 4 mm. Brakes still noisy as hell.

I think that I should ask for the upgraded pads etc to be fitted as seen in other posts etc ??? Car is only six months old.

Thanks for reading and any replies.

sbo
