How To Choose The Right Brake Pads?

How To Choose The Right Brake Pads?

No doubt, your vehicle has got good speed, good torque, good horsepower. But what about controlling the vehicle? Isn’t that important too?  Your ride might be fast as compared to others, but you need to keep a check on the brake pads too.

Custom BMW Z4 E85

 

World war Z. Serial slammer, Niall O’Dowd, kills it yet again with this super stanced and rather dapper BMW Z4 E85... You may be looking at these pages thinking this dude and his number plate look familiar, and you would be right. Yes, Niall O'Dowd has been here twice before with a fine little Lupo and a grid-look Mini. Each car was blessed with the S24NCD number plate and he built them to live up to the name - or rather down to it.

Aston-Martin DB4 potential £250,000 bill for a rebuild

Aston-Martin DB4 potential £250,000 bill for a rebuild

Super-desirable Aston-Martin DB4 tempts collectors at Monterey. If you had to come up with a discovery to make the knees of a DB-Aston fan tremble, you couldn’t do a lot better than this 1961 Aston Martin DIM. It’s to be sold at RM’s Monterey auction on August 15-16 and should fetch a price out of any reasonable proportion to the restoration work required.

Tread carefully Mercedes-Benz 300SEL 6.3 W109 and its successor 450SEL 6.9 W116

Tread carefully Mercedes-Benz 300SEL 6.3 W109 and its successor 450SEL 6.9 W116

Tread carefully. As an owner of both a Mercedes-Benz 300SEL 6.3 W109 and a 450SEL 6.9 W116 enjoyed your articles on ‘hot saloons’ in the Winter edition that featured these models. However, I noted that the New Zealand owner of the 6.9 seemed to recommend “budget" Chinese tyres as a suitable alternative to the correct Michelins. He also stated that he drove his 6.9 at over 100mph “on occasions".

Porsche 911 996 second life from £7000

Porsche 911 996 second life from £7000

It might be the most undesirable of all the Porsche 911s, but it's still a frickin 911, and a bloody good one at that! Previously it was the classic lines of 964 that were getting all the attention, but the more modem 996 can look the bollocks with a few choice mods! Not only that, but you get all the creature comforts of a modern day machine, the water-cooled engine, 300bhp and shit loads of charisma too!

Citroen Traction Avant 15-Six

Citroen Traction Avant 15-Six

Trauma on way to Luton Hoo. After three breakdowns in one night and a couple of days with an unleaded-induced headache, I’ve decided that I really should never tempt fate when behind the wheel of my Traction Avant. It may be a simple 1930s design, yet it seems to be able to read my thoughts. Well, that’s what appeared to happen on a 75-mile round trip to attend Peter Madden’s excellent Classics in the Walled Garden (see Your events).

Vauxhall Royale - family friend

Vauxhall Royale - family friend

Old family friend. I very much enjoyed Martin Buckley’s article on the Vauxhall Royale. My own example, despite also being a coupe, is a true family car. It was registered in Cheshire as LLG 999T on 11 April 1979 to my father, Howard Worth, and was one of the first Royal’s sold in the UK. It was fitted, from new, with the saloon’s two-tone silver and grey wheels, front fog lights, three dummy dashboard switches in place of die plastic blanks and a towbar. Other changes during the first few months were the fitment of the later model of Phillips Turn- lock radio (the early models simply locked rather than turned) and a one-piece fake veneer dashboard (as fitted to the 1980 model), rather than the two-piece version.
