The miss's and I bought a BA wagon this weekend (private sale) and the breaks shudder badly when you apply the break above 80k's, I threw it up on the hoist when we got it home, the rotors apear to be in new condition with no hot spots :?. is this a common fault in the BA's????

:D Yeah mate very common on the Ba's,
Standard fix is replace rotors with quality ones-DBA-RDA etc.
Also I have done some searching on this subject & its my opinion that the shudder can be caused by a couple of things,
1)machine discs on car & fit soft good quality pads.
2)check & or replace lower control arm bushes.
3) check & or replace balljoints.

:wink:

What pads you using & what sort of driving do you do?
If your easy on your brakes like me,with nearly all country driving then try softer pads.
They heat up faster!
