Generally if you can feel it though the pedal its the rears/maybe the front and if its coming through the steering then its the fronts in which case you either need to get new rotors or get the old ones mechined

What if it only happens at very high speeds (e.g 110-130 slowing down to exit speeds (70)

Yea no matter what speed it does it at the rotors are still going to have a lip on them and be warped so as said either mechine or replace and it is advised to replace the pads at the same time

Still warped rotors. Just needs more heat to show up.

What's the point in identifying a single warped disc? You'd want to replace/machine the discs as a front/rear pair in any case!

Have on car disc machining on all discs & fit new pads! :wink:
They should be able to tell if they are warped while machining them I think!
