I took it to the garage and they put a bleeding kit on. And if im honest it didn't really seem any different but he said he didn't think it would get much better. But I think they are very poor.

The pads and discs seem to be ok. But I just thought they would be better than they are

If the pedal feels spongey it would suggest an airlock. Alternatively it could be that your best off replacing the pads and/or disks.

I went to them once to get the headlights aligned on my Focus, after fitting black ST170 lights.

A few days later when I drove the car at night, the lights were great.... IF I didn't want to see anything that was more than six feet away from the front of the car. :s

And they used specialist aligning equipment to make them that good! I could have done it better with a garage wall and a bit of sticky tape.

They are a joke. What gets me if they have the the proper equipment. Why don't they get people that can use it properly.

Probably because they'd have to train everyone which needs someone to know what they're doing but anyone who knows what they're doing would probably want to work elsewhere.
