    Nice one, but I'd tend to agree with Phil as well. Black becomes a bit hidden in there, red would've stood out more. But hey, it's your car so what do we know!

    Speak to Mrs Spoons.... ..... Black looks OK though...., it keeps the focus on the wheels more...

    Mrs Spoons wanted to go for a sleek, upmarket, stealth look....

    ... rather than 'in you face' colours... but, hey.... what do I know

    The pedal still travels about the same as before, and the pedal still feels spongey a little bit (which I wasnt expecting to be honest, as I fitted braided hoses at the same time)...

    It was suggested that all this will settle down, once I put some miles on the car... So I am taking it easy and have only used the brakes very lightly.

    Hopefully, they will all start to 'bed in' over the next few weeks......

    They seem to have 'potential' from what I can feel, but I havent used them hard yet. I want to ease them in first. At the moment however, the pedal feels the same as it always has

    excellent, looking gud there steve

    mine are getting fitted in the morning and i ave decided not to paint
    them as with the car being dark and i have silver alloys i think with the
    calipers being a silver type finish then i`m sure they will look gud enough
    i wasn`t keen on painting them as you know i was bit concerned in
    doing them or not so now decided not to.
