Pray tell, where can I find this mythical beast?

Probably, out of all the ones I have owned, a C4 VTS 180 or a Berlingo, for totally different reasons.

C4vts 180 for me too. Might change my mind when I get some spirited driving done in the activa.

Forgotten about meantime. The car has been sitting on axle stands for a week, I started doing the back brakes and weather stopped play. Hoping I get them done in next couple of days, although forecast not good.

Nope, not even looked at the front ones yet. On the days I work I don't do anything else. I hate having the chronic back and leg pain I have. If I overdo it I end up in bed for days. I have the next 3 days off, but not really holding out much hope for doing anything tomorrow, as it is snowing just now. I wish I had a big garage, complete with a lift and heating then it would be ok [emoji4] Unfortunately I haven't so it's dry days outside only for me.

There seem to be 3 different sizes of discs and calipers. 266 mm, 283 mm, and 288 mm. I have no idea what size I have until the wheels come off to get measured
