Hi,

The one thing I would suggest is that you take a good look at your brakes. If a lot of crud got in there it could have fouled the boots on the pistons and got through. Also, your caliper slide pins may have got gummed up which will prevent proper floating.

The rears have the hand brake drum thingy which may also be affected.

Then again, Singapore is so spotlessly clean I doubt there was any debris in the water. Bet the Merlion smiled through it all :-)

Regards,
Adnan
