That was my first thought. But they're not cross-drilled. And what's more the dealership didn't say that they were worn.. but that they simply *had* to be replaced at the same time as the pads...

Not Boxster related but I figured you guys would know.

A friend of mine took his Tuareg in to have his brake pads replaced (light came on). The car has 40,000km on it. The dealership told him...

Heh.. I don't know why I didn't check those guys first. I've been drooling over their F2000 courses for a couple of years now.. makes sense that they'd have winter courses.

I'll be checking them...

Detailing in Toronto?

Hi guys,

Anyone out there know of a good place for detailing my car here in Toronto? Also any recommendations (if different) for good general hand-wash places too.

Thanks!
