    I'm In A Twizale & Need Help!

    Love that word, TWIZALE, just made it up! LOL

    Right, MOT Failure due to unbalenced brakes. Dannysport18 had a look and diagnosed the fault as the brakes! LOL . We had a look and i need new drivers side disk and pads. So . . . . . . . . . . I have accuired 2 new front calipers to be on the safe side, thanks Danny, but he said it is not worth getting drilled & Grooved disks! But i want some!

    So, Do i listen to the man thats knows and stick to OEM stuff? = Roughly £90

    OR

    Be a cheeky chappy and get some new fancy looking disks and pads, front only for now!? = £130+

    HELP ME PLEASE

    also, could you post any links to recommended stuff that you have used! Preferably cheap! lol

    Comparing them to old brakes is useless though, unless you compare them back to back with new OEM brakes, I don't think you can really say for sure.
