yeah mine have been done, think dan put a brand new caliper on it before i had it.

i do have awesomely big brakes for a little car though!

They do seem a good size for the small car.

yea i was thinking that myself, never good fitting old pads to a new disc, take it easy on the braking to try and avoid making bad scores in the discs that the pads have no doubt picked up

will ruin the discs

oh yea i agree!

i can sometimes get slightly impatient waiting for the speed on a big dual carriage way, but on shorter blasts and bends im smiling (or shiting myself if im honest ha! )


this happend earlier actually as i just stepped out of much fancier cars in work eg audi A4 S-line

Nothing like a b road blast and besides a faster car is more likely gonna get you in trouble with all these daft cameras.

Although speed is nice, i was pissing my sides on the way to work this morning as iv had a volkswagon caddy to use for the weekend and ny god what a fast little bastard, not what i was expecting when i jumped in it. Everyone rushing to get to work then i come bursting past with this white van lol, the just huge lumps of power lol. Got in work and spoke to the other lads whod drove it in the past and they agreed ut was a shock lol.
