    Hi All,

    I think I'm having amid life crisis prior to hitting 30, as I would like to fit some cross drilled brake discs.

    I'm struggling to fing any, has anyone done this themselves? I'm only looking for a direct replacement if possible.

    Thanks

    no offence but i have a le-mans quattro 3l tdi and the brakes are fantastic all cross drilled discs do in reality for road use are grate pads..... worse if grooved too and they are prone to cracking round the holes. better off going for factory discs n pads

    Thanks Gavin0478,
    I would agree that the standard brake arrangement on the 3L TDI is the best I've experienced compared with other similar powered cars.

    The reason for cross drilled brakes was for aesthetic purposes - sad really.
