    Default Just orderd my new Brakes

    Just ordered EBC Turbo Grove front and rear disks and Red Stuff Pads for my car and I should have them on Tuesday Total Cost £380.00 Inc Vat

    I really need the fronts asap after my second set of front disks in 6 months have warped never had warped disks on a car and then have 2 sets in less than 2 years first set were from lmf when i got my calipers second set were same as these.

    I tried getting the disk and pad set from Vauxhall phoned 3 garages got told that they had these on back order and did not know when they would be in did not want to risk unknown brand again so decided that I might as well go all out and upgrade the lot to EBC I know they are expensive but they were get when I had them on my V6 Mondeo Estate

    Will post pics when I get them fitted

    I wouldn't be surprised if the warped discs are due to yours beign an Auto mate - to do tend to sit on them a lot in traffic or at junctions after braking? or do you always put it into neutral with the handbrake...?

    Thats a bit unlucky having 2 sets warp on you in such a short space of time, reminds me of my jag xj8 that warped 2 sets in 3 weeks, turned out it was a bad batch of discs, them new ones look proper beefy, should stop on a 10p now, what colour you planning to paint the calipers? I'd just stick to gloss black so the red pads stand out more if it was mine.
