well guys the new slotteds and EBC's are on, much much better, pedal is much firmer, brakes apply alot firmer, and ABS kicks in alot sooner :P

i hope ive done it all right, after a 15 min drive i stopped and there was a little smoke coming formt he wheel, not pouring just a little steam like. guess thats them bedding in and any grease that was on the rotors from my hand?



part 2!

after discussion from frank wanting me to screw my old rotors and pads, this is what i came up with ! click on the photos, waring about 500kb each. (note there isnt any pad left, just metal ;)

they still braked pretty impressivly when jumping on the brakes.

as for the squeeling noise. dont most pads start to squeel when they get low?

these didnt ;) one day they just started grinding really suddenly, thought it may have beena rock or something, took a look few days later and ti was f**k, so just saw how car i could go.
