    My latest upgrade :)

    Just thought I'd post my new upgrade.



    Discs are standard 280mm (Obv not OE ) with the EBC greenstuff pads (Cause there are no other EBC pads for the 280mm discs unless someone has a part number)

    (Sorry for the pics being rather shoddy, Dell streak camera doesn't like to work very well)

    Cant really say much about them yet as mine are just about bedded in, Will need to drive the car hard, but when I came back from the dundee meet us scots had, i drove the car pretty hard and still had brakes afterwards, albeit the pedal was a little more soft. Need to get DOT 5.1 in it and passed to all the brakes (I've got a feeling that there might be air in the system when i tried to remove the rear drums (Looking for a 4 stud rear disc setup atm))

    But to be honest, they are pretty good although I don't think they do what EBC state which is produce less brake dust. (I cleaned the wheel yesterday after applying the paint)

    They're not that expensive when you compare price/performance to the OE pads.
