    No worries mate you were very quick fitting them.
    Sorry i did not chat much i was feeling very ill and had abso no sleep.
    They look great on.
    How does the breaking feel? Is there a greater improvement over stock?
    And Happy Bday for Friday mate...

    thanks markey, they feel a lot better than stock, allthough im being very gentle with them at the mo, i like the noise when you apply the brake, reminds me of riding my old gsxr.

    Re: now i can stop

    just a little update ive done a few more miles in the car and the difference in the stopping power is very noticable, ive painted my callipers gloss black and they look very good, should get the audi decals tomorrow so i will put a pic up of the finished job.

    What paint did you use snoop? I'm going to paint mine when I swap the wheels over. Also did you prepare the caliper in anyway?
