    Finally have some shots of the drilled and grooved MTEC discs and mintex pads i had fitted at the weekend.

    Hidden a bit too well by the Club alloys but can just about be seen:

    Front:




    Rear:




    As for how they feel, they're not quite bedded in fully, but are getting there. No fade as i got from the originals and needs less pressure to get the same stopping power.

    Just waiting for the handbrake to sort itself now as its taking quite a few more clicks to hold than it used to. I was told it was not adjustable and adjusted itself with use. Is this real or just some lame excuse for the guy not to adjust the handbrake?

    It did occur to me after he'd fitted them that they didn't match the back and that one pair must be wrong.

    i'm going on the assumption that it shouldn't make that much difference aprt from the brake dust will collect in the centre of the hub rather than being flung off the edges

    As above, when i got mine fitted i took them down with O/S and N/S markered on the inside, so i made sure they where matching and the grooves sweeping the way i wanted...
