Many Vauxhalls suffer this, where the inner face gets badly corroded , starting at the outer circumference and slowly working inwards.  Never seen this on other cars I've owned.  My MV6 and TB2 aside - where I tended to wear out the discs before this happened - this has happened on all my Omegas, and the Zafira. and the Nova...


happens to anything fitted with sliding calipers. Austin 1100s suffer from it.

Racking my brains to think what callipers my other cars had.  I thought the R25 was a sliding calliper setup, and I think the Jag is as well....
