    When i first posted i thought these were like the black anodised discs that you can get , i had not read the part that says the gold coating would be worn off almost immediately .
    So i dont see the point of paying for a coating that would not last 5 minutes .
    i allready have these discs fitted all round on mine, plain not gold plated ,and i sprayed the centre hubs black but even this comes off once the heat from the brakes gets to it

    I had the these without the gold on my last signum I painted the center hub part with silver hammerite I found them ok, gave a nice zzzzzz when braking. They are more cosmetic than anything else but looked good imo. So if you don't want to paint them yourself and want a cosmetic upgrade go for it.

    If they stayed gold all the time them yer they would of been worth it, but they look rubbish once the gold has rubbed off

    Pointless if all that's left gold after your first braking is the hub as you don't see that.

    Would rubbing the finish off not cause issues with breaking? Gunk on pads etc?
