    New brakes fitted

    Fitted them ok, found out the hard way that the car needs a bit of modifying to get them to fit but got there in the end. Poor puctures as the camera battery decided to stop holding charge today so another thing to go and buy. Car feels very responsive in fact they bite really positively unlike the VXR setup which tries to throw me through the front windscreen each time they are used. Not bad for £600

    330mm. Just washed car and can reach to do the caliper between the spokes so they will stay nice and clean too. The disk will go rusty in time but I don't care for the price they were
