    Question Black diamond brakes

    Do they stay black or do they go sliver after 1 day, just thinking as the car is black the alloys are black, would be nice to have black brakes discs as well, and can anyone tell me, do i need Bosch or Lucas pads? on a 1.8 coupe.

    The black gets scuffed off the contact area pretty much as soon as you use the brakes.

    the rest will stay black, but it will eventually succumb to rusting - it'll take much longer than bare steel tho
