    only fitted front pads and discs as i have drums at the rear, much better than stand vauxhall ones

    Check the F/S section as the pads are in there

    I have 12 Groove Black Diamond discs all around on the 888.

    I cant honestly say how much they've improved the car cos I put the 888 front pads, mintex rears and goodridges hoses on all at the same time.

    EBC turbo groove front (grooved and dimpled). Mintex plain rear. EBC greenstuff pads front and rear. Front air deflectors on wishbones for extra cooling.
    Performance is good and don't seem to fade even when subjected to fast cross country blasts!
    Recemmended although I am sure the black diamond or others will be just as good.
    Expect to hear a ticking sound from the grooved brakes as the pads pass over the grooves, this gets quieter as they wear in!
