I've got a query regarding the rear wheels, they keep getting very dirty, very quick compared to the front wheels. The fronts look very clean even after a couple of hundred miles.

Not sure what the reason could be for this... any ideas?? :confused:

As above mate the VSA works by braking the back wheels

This seems like excessive brake dust, as the fronts also have brakes but don't burn out as much as the rears leaving behind a lot of dust which looks odd on a clean car.

Could it be that the VSA has a fault? or is this how it is with all the cars?

Same with them all mate nothing to worry about try washing it then switch the VSA off and you'll notice the difference

check your brakes are not binding on, i stripped mine down and greased the runners recently as they were sticking slightly

If all ok then it will just be a case of the VSA causing the extra dust

Make sure the rear brakes arnt binding on mate, mines were replaced and slides cleaned up just before i got the car last year as the mot certificate said they were binding on.

Will try with VSA off and see the difference and also check that the brakes aren't binding on.

Thanks :)
