    Default New brakes

    Yesterday was the day I saw the light – the great brake awakening

    It was finally time for some new brake discs and pads on the Vectra. The old discs were a bit, ehhh ugly as you can see. So what type of discs and brakes were selected for the upgrade? I went for:
    • EBC sport discs 2008 edition and Roesch carbon fiber pads:

    I have some short running-in time ahead but I can tell you the car stops so much better already

    Well, I´ve heard (and read) that EBC Red pads ned to much warming up before they bite - me no like that
    The Roesch pads works when they are cold and bites really well
    They are also verry quiet

    Might be worth asking at http://www.roeschbrake.com/

    Only uk source I could find is http://www.theracersedge.co.uk/ but they didn't have anything for the Vectra online.
