First turn of the key from what I could tell.

They are good lads there, but fingers crossed I don\'t need to go back until servicing next year ;)

Rear Bearing Failure
« Reply #77 on: September 07, 2011, 10:53:26 PM »
My rear bearing suffered oil starvation and the e shaft went out of alignment damaging the rear rotor after 82k. I have done 3k miles or so on the rebuild.

Apex seal broke in rear rotor mashing the remnants in to the rotors and rear housing, this pushed the e-shaft out of alignment slightly shipping one of the front rotor (in turn scoring the centre place) thanks to Haywards my car is now Awesome....
