    I must have esp.

    Ok this is a little freaky, and I need you advice, don't flame too hard. Two days agao, I decided to go for a little joy ride, I had a destination, but went a really long way. While on my excursion a sivler V crept up behind me on a 4 lane hwy and started to play. We ended up stopping at a gas station and chatted for a few mins. He lurked on the forum a little, so he knew of here. I don't see many Vs and haven't met many owners so this was cool. Then today I was going through my camera and found a picture of my cra with a random silver v parked next to it. (I work at a mall, so when I went to leave I put my card in his door and asked him to come say hi next time in the mall.) Guess who came into my job just now? Wierd right?
    This is where I am getting worried, if I do have esp, last night I had a nightmare. I have been going to this new mechanic, real nice guy, he's done a few things for me lately, well tomorrow I have an appointment to have new brake pads put on. Last night I dreamt something bad happened to my car while there. I woke up and couldn't go to sleep. I know that sounds gay, but I'm just a little aprehensive about doing it now. I really need to have brakes done, and I don't know who else to trust in my area. Am I just freaking out?

    whut??

    I don't get the connection between the mystery silver V driver and your fear of the new mechanic. ??? Anyhow if you're that worried take your car elsewhere.

    Re: I must have esp.

    No connection. I just felt something, I can't say what, but something made me go the long way, and I met the first one. Then todayI took out my camera, which I hadn't in a while, saw the picture of the second silver v, then the owner shows up 2 hours later. I dunno never mind, Lock this one up and throw away the key, I'm done. Good thing I have no points or they'd be taken away for this thread.

    Well as I said, if you have a bad feeling about the mechanic it might be best to go elsewhere. Good luck.

    Put the brake pads on yourself. It's almost as easy as filling the tank with gas. Seriously, the V is one of the easist vehicles to change the pads on. As long as your rotors are OK.

    That's awesome. I think the Silver V represents your parents, and the apprehension about the mechanic is brought on by unresolved issues from your childhood.

    That'll be $4,000 please.

    Rest in Peace, J.D. (aka Dirt_Cheap_Fleetwood)

    Re: I must have esp.

    I understand why its worrisome to change your own pads if you havent done it before. I always had my brakes done at a shop until a few years ago. I started going to the track and realized how easy it is to change the pads yourself. With the V's calipers its super simple.

    All you need is a hammer and an awl, small screwdriver, etc to knock a couple pins out. Pull out the pads, compress the pistons (you can use your fingers, but it takes longer), then put new ones in. Pump the brakes a few times to build up pressure, then follow the bedding instructions (a few moderate decelerations).

    If the wheels are off the car, you can change the pads (both sides) in 5min. I'll say 10 to be on the safe side. Urby did a nice FAQ writeup on it.

    You're welcome.
