You might have good brakes but what about the other vehicle?

These came off a car I was workng on yesterday. Frightening what we share the roads with.
As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everybody is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.

Many years ago I worked on a mates Mondeo, he said the car doesn't feel right when braking.. It had passed an MOT 2 weeks previous.
When i looked one of the front ventilated discs had one half of the disc half the thickness of the other side. Also the only way i could remove it was to saw it all the way to the hub so i could crack it off it had got that hot as for the calipers well i just replaced them
