    Stopping power ...

    Got myself a wee treat for the VXR for when the pads/discs need changing.

    I'll be bunging on a set of these:



    Although I'll be keeping standard sized discs

    No, afraid not. I keep all original equipment 'just in case'

    Perfect example being the exhaust - had a problem with the milltek, so had to put the original back on whilst the problwm was sent away then new one returned (shitty returns policy that, car would have been off the road otherwise)

    Good deal!

    I keep thinking of changing out the calipers on mine too - I think the standard discs are plenty big enough, it just needs some calipers with more 'bite'!
