I've got them on the rear of my car, I know its not the same but they seem pretty good.

I 'wont' be going for ultimates on the front again.

I'd choose Bendix CT's over ultimates, and Lucas over RDA's

I dunno if i'd like rda's on the front, I tend to choose brand names on the front braking/tyres.

if you were going to, an upgraded set (sports) would be recomended i would imagine

seen them at work on a few ba's! I wouldn't use them! People that have had them have told me that they not too flash! Some people might have had good experience with them but the people i have had come tell me about them are dead against them!

my 2 cents
