    Hey guys, recently the noise coming out from my car is really pissing me off. My brake pad and rotors were the main culprit I thought of and replaced them. But still the noise. When I start my car-push emergency brake-shift gear to Drive from Parking position then I hear the grinding...

    Hey guys, so I love my car (as do pretty much all AFM users) but the thing thats bugging me right now (in addition to not having an x-charger :kooky: )is the general lack of stopping-power.
