    Are you looking to compare plain, grooved or drilled?

    IMO I'd keep away from drilled discs from what I've read on the internet

    EDIT - as your profile says 2003 GSi, have you got 302 or 314mm fronts as standard?

    I fitted large discs and callipers to my Cosworth a couple of years ago and used Black Diamond, drilled and grooved and they were ace. They performed outstanding, even on the track and were a very competitive price.

    They were reccommended and fitted by Grahame Goode Racing (Touring Car Champion) in Leicester who used to do work on my car.

    Calipers just bolt on and off, no need to change anything else unless you want to.

    I've had red stuff pads fitted with grooved vx discs for about 6 months now, and they're fantastic. They bite, and bite, and bite.

    I used to run black diamond drilled and grooved discs on a previous car. The car got a very sore time of it as did the brakes had all four glowing red on more than one occasion however the discs certainly didn't appriciate it. They cracked from top to bottom through the drill holes, the grooves were fine. I'd stay away from drilled discs in my opinion.

    got to say had EBC drilled and grooved with Red stuff pads on Mondeo before I get my vectra and they were great, advantage of EBC is they don't drill all the way through so don't suffer form failure's as fully drilled disks do
