Hi all,

I have just got myself a new EF Gli T5... and loving it! I have noticed I get some pretty bad shuddering when breaking(once the pads/disks are warmed up), I am assuming that the disks are warped(felt this before) but is there anything else that could be causing this?
And since I am looking at new disks, what are the upgrade options, I see that DBA has a sloted disk for my car, but are there any other upgrades, caliper upgrades? Because I would love some beefier breaking.

compared to your warped rotors (or even new stock rotors), the slotted rotors with some good pads will bring a great increase to your brakes.
