The sliders sound right to me. 1 rubber sleeve on the front.

With regards to you original concern. Get the runout of the brake discs checked. If it‘s out of spec have the discs machined with an on the vehicle type brake lathe.

I love and embrace the tech offered by modern cars. They are drivers aids and I adjust my driving to work with them.

He was correct about each wheel being on a independent roller. Whether he should have tested your car on said rollers is a matter of opinion.

Has all of the stuff the installer failed to install been removed? You could try taking it to a dealer and asking them to reprogram the module with As-Built data.

Steel or alloy wheels? Steel wheels never had plastic hub caps from the factory.

Have they ever worked do you know? Is it a UK car or JDM? The most common cause for those sort of symptoms is someone fitting an after market rear fog lamp to a Roadster and removing the blanking plug that goes where the dashboard lights dimmer switch would be if fitted.
