    That's the thing, isn't it? You can have a perfectly good set of genuine Vx discs and pads for less than £80, so it's hard to justify paying nearly 3 times that for so-called 'performance' parts....

    Doesn't stop me thinking about it though

    about all thats 'great' about the rossini ones is that the name is the wear level indicator..

    not worth the money in my opinion....you can get EBC discs for less from LMF

    I guess I'll be sticking with the standard VX discs and pads, but I can't help wondering why these are so expensive. Do they stop better? Do they last longer? Do they just look nice

    I was hoping somebody would say they were the best thing since sliced bread, and here's why...

    nope.. they are just a bit 'gimmicky'... why pay all that when you can pay £60+V and have OEM kit..
