So long as you only look at the front, need to save some more pennies and do something with the rear discs/calipers, perhaps towards the end of the year :)

Very smart and impressive, you will be stopping on a sixpence now (but we might have to explain what one of them is!)

Thanks, the guys at Awesome said once they’re bedded in I should definitely feel the difference.

Thanks Andy, out of interest is the rear brake set up a straight swap for the original disks, I thought I had read somewhere that there were issues with the hand brake cables?

You use the OEM rear calipers relocated with new carriers to suit the bigger disc so no problem with the hand brake

I had a look at them online and noticed that they are also a two piece disc, where as my front discs are the single disc, not sure if this would be a problem?

Last week I had a few hours to spare so decided to see if I could clean up one of the wheel arches again and this time try to remove the tar spots. With the aid of some white spirit I was pleasantly surprised at the outcome.
Now I just need to do the other wheel arches and also the arch liners and apply some protective coating!!!
