    good discs, can't vouch for the pads though as mine came with Mintex pads... will be buying their discs and Mintex pads again next time as well...

    paint the non contact areas before fitting though...

    As above. I've got them on the show car and probs with them, used Mintex pads with them, i opt'ed to have them powder coated, buy a spray can of hammerite hammered black on the non-contact surfaces will keep them looking fresh like they've been powder coated

    I probably should know the answer but what's the reason for painting them?

    the non contact area rusts, but when painted it stays in good condition and therefore looks smarter behind your alloys
