    Default Brake Discs

    I would personally just go for groved discs with plenty of grooves, my mate races cars and said the problem with drilled discs is that you get radial distortion and this can cause a bit of judder, also look at race cars you dont see many with drilled discs they are just usually grooved, so i would reccommend just grooved, they are also a lot cheaper unless you want to show off!

    I have had a good look for them with no luck I`m afraid. Another option is a GSi upgrade which is available through LMF with a club discount, or wait to see if the vxR jobs will fit ??

    VXR discs are a massive 345mm so i'd wait for them. Plus you could always do a 'Drinky' and drill the holes yourself. ;-)
