    Lol, it was a mildly car related fact i posted on a motoring section on a tech forum.

    I was more expecting people to share stories of things they had spotted or similar but instead it just turned into ****posting *shrug*

    Then maybe you should have posted something like, " look what I found, do you guys have any similar stories."

    Not seen one with allen key type studs before, this must be a nightmare if they get over tightned? Can imagine they would round quits easily.

    Those are just plastic caps. You get a VW group bent paperclip to pull them out with.

    Ive removed caps that are flat just like covers. Not ones that have a allen key slot. Whats the point in that? Genuine question.

    Unless the rules have changed recently, As long as it passes on the rollers, that is only an MOT advisory. I have seen much worse!

    Pistons make the best brake pads.

    But seriously. Who takes a photo of a colleagues brakes and posts it on the internet. :o

    Aye but from memory they need to have a braking force within 25% of one another. I honestly can't see that being the case here!

    Is that a rusty nail in the 2nd pic?

    Won't the cracking on the tyres be an MOT fail?
