I suspect that the off side front disc/brake is warped on the W203 – when I apply the brakes there is a heavy judder from the front off side wheel.

I washed the car on Monday but did allow just under half an hr for the brakes/wheels to cool down – the harder I have to brake from acceleration/speed the worse the vibration/judder is.

The alloy wheels are fine and not been buckled or kerbed on any way.
Would you all agree that it is most likely a warped disc/brake causing the judder from what I have described?

have a look at this....

StopTech : Balanced Brake Upgrades

We did have something similar after the big freeze this year, when the pads had frozen to the disc. I think they left some friction material on the disc.

Had bought new discs, but began to improve before I could fit them so they are now held in reserve...
