They brought out the pads and said, "See how the shims and heat sinks are separate from the pads? They are supposed to be one solid unit. We can sell you new pads and rotors for $750." And I said, "OK, put everything back together so I can get the heck out of here and never come back." Jokes on me. They didn't properly torque the lugs, so when I went to remove my wheel locks later, they shattered on one of the wheels and wouldn't come off another wheel at all. Took it in to Pep Boys so they could wrench off the shattered lugs and sell me new McGuards. Ug.
Fair enough.

I can't tell if its getting better or worse. I just started getting back on Nasioc a few months ago and I haven't had to remove myself yet. I feel it coming again tho....
