    Not to be a party pooper but here's just something to consider.
    I know they're refering more to higher speed vehicles but some still has merit.

    Where did you order these from? Do you have a link to a website I can check out? I have a Disco 3 V8 but at some point someone changed the discs to normal from the factory fitted slotted and grooved discs.

    I put these on mine.... cant say they are really better, I probably need to do a proper bleed as the 90 with std discs stops better..

    I only recently found out that brake fluid is kapot after two years of service. Don't just bleed, flush the brake lines. Four bottles of brake fluid should be enough.

    yes, for sure.. interesting thing is, manual states to start with passenger front first, then driver, then passenger rear then driver rear..

    on the 130 I would thought left rear first (furthest) right rear, passenger then driver

    I also found conflicting info. I started furthest moving closer.

    Vehicle failed roadworthy on brakes and after I did this it passed.
