I'm going to swing it past a local Indy to see if I need disc changing as would be cheaper to get it done same time. Labour extra 30

With todays manufacturing tolerances, it's rare to find a disc that is out of true, and in this case you'd take it back anyway. However, that small bit of crud that may have got onto the hub or disc face whilst fitting can make a big difference to the run out, and IMHO it's worth checking. Rightly or wrongly, I tend to clean the hub faces up with Scotchbrite before fitting the new disc. Being the old fashioned type, (I am old, and don't do fashion), this is the way I was taught to do it, and I doubt I'll change now. The last lot of discs I did was a few months ago on a Civic Sport, and they didn't come with the old grease/oil protective covering, so no need to solvent clean them before fitting.

Same here, scotchbrite the hubs and fully degrease the discs before fitment.

I'm lucky, I have an on-car lathe to true up discs if needed.
