    GSF offer standard Leon Cupra R discs cheap...much cheaper than SEAT.
    They are the same discs just plain faced.

    Drilled are fine...but they will crack in time if you use them hard.

    I'm using Brembo drilled and haven't had any problems with my new set. They've been fitted for about 10,000 miles now. Maybe I just don't drive my S3 hard enough

    Genuine Brembo GT kit disks are drilled, I managed to warp a set in 1k miles of driving, now running Solid CupraR disks with no ill effects at all, same braking power and I've done a couple of track sessions also.

    This week I'm having a set of EBC Xtremes fitted front and rear with DS2500 pads, on Badger Bill's recommendations. They are semi-grooved rather than drilled and initial reports seem to be good. They are also cheaper than the 'standard' items. Costs near enough £500 for discs and pads all round delivered from Bill.
