Had enough of the standard brakes being atrocious and took the plunge thanks to Ned at Autolusso to order a set of Perfomance Friction Pads and a new set of discs (boggo Brembo jobs)
Had them on the car for 500 miles or so, and I've got to be honest, I can't believe how poor the standard brakes were - B roads are now quite fun!
Got to be honest, there are only a couple of downsides I can see so far - one is that the pads are so strong biting the ABS has to come into play more than once,
The others are day to day niggles - They're pretty dusty compared to the standard pads - the photo was taken after 50 miles of "sporty" driving and they're flippin' noisy, all the time!
I'm sure they'll quieten down, but I think my neighbours are going to shoot me - doesn't matter what speed you're doing or how hard you brake, they shriek like nobody's business.
Hopefully once I've put a couple of ks on them they should quieten down.
Cheers Ned! (By the way, are they always this noisy?)
