Very nice Clubman.
Who used to own it from the Club?

I reckon the wheels suit it though!
What wheels are you putting on it instead?

ya happens some times on coopers some times when you push the piston back in a small amount of dirt goes back in with it which then cause the piston to cock in side the bore. just check for sings of a piston not pushing out.

If its not that im stumped did you do anything elce ?
