Question Has anyone had their brakes upgraded ? I'm thinking of going the EBC route all round with Green Stuff pads and vented cross drilled discs to the front.
Anyone got any views on EBC or suggest other options ?
Has anyone had any problems with insurance after upgrading with non OEM parts.

Cheers
Simon

nope since i've fitted better than OEM then i haven't told them.
EBC's are renowned for there braking qualities so sod em.
tried something today to try and give you an idea of how good they are...
drive allong say 50mph...
i can stop the car - dead stop and the speedo still reads 30mph before dropping...ie it takes me a drop of 20mph on the speedo in an emergency brake test and im stopped...obviously a few hundredths later the guage drops to zero...
and for those asking my guage isn't faulty...it isn't slow and response perfectly ok!
try it.
