    I have the grooved ones and matching brake pads. Had them fitted over 3 years ago and still going strong. Big improvement over the standard brake imho

    What ever the name, 9/10 times the discs are all bought from a similar place then CNC'd by the companies in question or a middleman just before, so they should be ok even if not popular at min... I remember when people didn't really know about Mtec's...

    following this thread, as it's about time for new discs (Opel OPC) and would probably go for grooved ones - mostly for the looks of really. Anyone by any chance know if it's possible to put bigger discs on the rear wheels (again for the looks of it)?

    I have used the BD ones in the combi format. I gave them some s#it and they came back laughing! Using better pads make more of a difference and high temp brake fluid too....
