    i had to remove the caliper otherwise it makes replacing the discs a pain,i've had greenstuff pads on all my cars before and where really good as are these nicely bedding in now and braking superb.i did read the post about them on the s3 tho.i'll be getting a bigbrake kit when the power of the engine gets higher tho so this will do just fine for now

    Yes they do Jason, admitally not as black as when you first fit them but still remain dark if that makes sense...

    Rolty how you finding the greenstuff pads? Im running standard mintex pads with my black diamonds and there doing well.

    My greenstuff pads are spot on too, loads of bite compared to stock.

    Loads less brake dust too. I cleaned my car the other day and the back wheels have a coating of brake dust but the fronts hardly have a spec on them.

    less brake dust is a win in my book. When I finally get my wheels back tomorrow they'll be sealed with a few coats of wax to stop the little brake dust I do get from eating the coating away.

    I assume you didnt remove the caliper completely? Still connected to the fluid lines yeah ?

    Green stuff were ok on my Cav, but having driven on DS2500 i wouldn't look anywhere else

    Have a look at my 'progress' thread tomorrow and there should be pics on there. I would have had them back today but there was an issue.

    My maps great though, its a Custom Code phase 1. Car pulls really well, its really REALLY good now...so much more poke compared to standard.

    I'd go for a generic map from a well known company such as AMD, Revo or Custom Code. You can get cheap 'custom maps' but to be honest they're not that great. A generic map is fine for mine and your cars due to the lack of bug engine mods. Mine was 250 all in Its a very smooth power delivery but it really goes when you boot it. Even when cruising at motorway speeds it really pulls well right through the range. Very happy with it.
