Yes with loud bang and again last night, just refitted with some lock tight, hope this will help to keep it in but seams a bad design to me.

Yep Lee, the rotor fell apart and they had to call the AA out... They ended up using my A610 for the test drive. Never took any pictures of mine as they thought there was too much blue, and wanted to break up the colours with a yellow car.
I have a few photos from the day if anyone wants me to post them up..

I've superglued it back in myself on that car lol.

Was never a great interference fit and overboosting so much it's the weakest link.

I have removed the bleed valve that was fitted and that as lowered the boost now but still boost more then standard I bet.
