Subject: Re: Brake squeal - 900i

Yeh my 88 900i does it, I've got 4 pots calipers on it though so that may be somethign to do with it. I'll only be using the 900 for long journeys shortly as my Citreon AX GTi will be coming out of the body shop on thursday so I'll be thrashing about in that, project M-AX, metalist AX. Pure white, quad lights, quad fogs, lowered 80mm, electricaly adjustable coilovers, up an down at the turn of a dial, 15" Compmotive Mo's, 50bhp Nitrous kit, race head, uprated pistons, fast road cam. etc. etc. the list goes on and on. I know that most of you won't see why I'd drive a Citreon super mini more than a Saab 900i, but until you've driven something that ways 700KG and puts out 147bhp at the wheels you won't understand. Lets just say that the ability to go from 0-60 in 5.7 seconds (timed at Avon Park Raceway) is great. arry <rootnopsamlhost.spam.this> wrote in message news:vMYT4.20646$UC.254043nopsam2-hme0... > Yeah, the Pagid Pads from G+S can squeal a bit can't they!!
