I have seen that yes, thanks.
This is also useful:

And according to those tests it's definitely not the brake bomb at fault.

That was awesome! First drive on the motorway, doing the 20km to The Toy Shop Wellington.
Made a new friend at the petrol station. That will happen a lot I think.
And what's that in the background in pic 2? A Coupe quattro with properly working brakes, that's what.

By the way according to the trip computer I averaged 16.5mpg, which is 17.1l/100km.

Not sorted yet. Had a drive of Takas' CQ and his brakes are way better at the top end, mine has nothing until about 2/3 of the way down. Not confidence-inspiring.
Toyshop will sort it :D The front wheels were hot when I arrived so the brakes are definitely binding, so they're going to remove and service the calipers first and go from there.

This is the update from today:

There is a fluid leak at accumulator area which needs sorting.
Calipers seem OK.
They are going to take a look at master cylinder today.
The discs arenít right. The pads donít contact the full surface area.

Toy Shop supplied the discs and are going to resolve that issue. New discs will be a week, so Rusty will be sleeping there for a while.

I've asked for a price to change gearbox and rear diff fluids while it's there. I don't fancy doing those without a hoist.

Yeah. Resisting the urge to call hourly and say "are we there yet?"

I have changed the gearbox fluid with the car up on jackstands and me rolling around on the floor before, the floor was well swept before I did it though. A hoist would have been better but needs must.

Small update - the calipers are good, but seals on the master cylinder were not so good so they're replacing them. Waiting on them coming in from overseas.
But they're still not sure if that's what the main issue is.
Hoping it's nothing to do with the ABS pump as that sounds expensive.
