    What would be best for Road use, grooved discs, or drilled discs?? Car isn’t going to see the track. I’m looking for a brake upgrade soon but it’s a bloody minefield :banghead:

    Can give you far more detailed info via email or simply call the office (0191-4103770) but in general terms avoid drilled discs like the plague and use a high quality carbon disc or possibly grooved if you want to make a cosmetic statement

    For road use the pad is the most important part of the 'stop'.......

    @asperformance will be the man to talk too. I don't like the look of drilled always fitted grooved .

    Are you just changing the discs Pete or are you going balls and getting the AP calipers... or is it a wait and see jobbie??

    As much as I’d love APs it won’t be, I would then need new wheels too and by then you’re into 3k plus. Lol. Just new discs and pads ;)

    this is the trouble.. It's like when you're repainting the woodwork at home.... Suddenly the walls look crap.. You end up chasing until the house has been rebuilt.
