    Default better braking

    my light has just come on telling me the front brakes are worn, but to be honest you could tell cos they were pants. If im going to replace them can somebody suggest where i can get decent cross drilled or grooved discs with pads to match too? i will just get normal set for the back. I dont want a brake upgrade kit (unless its bl**dy cheap!) but a decent brand, but not competition use as its used for work mainly, so i dont want a set that only work when warmed up (as on my 300zx).
    gonna drain and replace the fluid too just in case....
    Thanks!

    for the best brakes you can get, get on the LMF website, get yourself a GSI 314mm setup and for an additional £40 you can have the discs grooved or drilled ..so for £389 you have the easiest brake upgrade going.. you will not be disssapointed..

    yeah,, but why stay with 285's???.... the only REAL way to get better brakes is to fit bigger ones......and LMF's 314mm kit deal just CAN'T be beaten..
