    Default Brake advice

    Guys,

    I'm getting a grinding noise when braking on the NSR, car is pretty new to me, an 05 plate with 48000 on the clock now. I've just fitted a caterman special so the brakes are the next thing to sort.

    There are slight lips on a couple of the disks, but no worse on the NSR.

    I dont want to take it to the stealer's, and the local garage are rip-off merchants, so I'll get it done myself with a little help from a neighbour.

    Anyway, can somebody advise which are the best pads, and disks if needed, to go for? I've been reading lots of posts on here about upgrading, but I think I'll need calipers also as standard wont take the upgrade. What price are we talking to do this?

    Thanks
    Bob

    the easiest way to get better bigger brakes is to go for the LMF GSi conversion..loads of folks have gone down this route and for £300 odd quid you can'yt go wrong.. it's all VX bits as well, so no problems in the future..

    or if you just want to swap for standard, you can't beat the prices of VX's disc and pad kits..£65+V retail per axle..all you need in 1 box....
