Yea I'm kicking myself for not considering it when mine went for a service couple of weeks back!It’s fine, they rust slightly slower than the drums. Harder to paint.
I like the idea of Renault replacing rusty drums on warranty. Never thought to ask.
Tesla Model 3 , New Peugeot 208 e also has themTyres are Michelin Primacy 4s, so not even EV specific tyres.
Cheaper at production stage but (maybe) more expensive to engineer, bigger warranty costs, something to do with servicing. Or maybe the other way around.Yes. I don’t follow the logic of discs being cheaper. If they were the case then why didn’t they have them from the start?
Good point - it now has an electronic parking brake. Maybe that was the impetus.Rear discs are very poor for park brake performance in a regular set up. If you have some other way to do that (some have little drum brakes within the disc brake, called a 'top hat' disc', common now is electric which can apply a much higher pressure than manual lever) then rear discs become instantly viable where they were not before.
