    I like them alot they look great and do the job rather well, with a nice Zzzzzz kind of noise when braking hard. They really look the part with painted calipers.

    I've found drilled and slotteds get a much better bite on heavy braking in the wet, or when driving down some dusty corogated roads. Essentially, its not a gimmick, they really do work.

    If it was a track car id say dont bother as they crack from the drilled holes but otherwise they are fine. Mintex do give a fair bit of dust off tho

    I thought the front disks were bigger than what the advertisement says on a 1.9.
    286mm in the advert and I thought mine were 304mm or similiar although I do have the 314mm upgrade
