Ride: G6E TURBO

Location: THE DRUITT
NSW, Australia

While driving tonight I noticed a very quiet noise from the left hand side, less then 2 mins later it it got louder. When braking the noise seems to stop when driving under 10km's with my foot on the brake the noise stops.

I had the front discs machined last week & new pads where put on, the discs are DBA slotted discs.

Well the noise was from the adaptor not being tight, the person who machined my discs didnt tighten the adaptor, as I had the car in a shop for the machining, I rang them & gave them a good blasting.
I know all about the adaptor saga & bloody thankful I wasnt driving on the Hwy/Motorway when this happend :roll:
