    I think that pad and/or rotor changes are all very well,and may produce some improvements,but compared to a proper brake kit,it's not much of a gain.

    Personally,I'd put the money towards the brake kit.

    To be honest I'm perfectly happy with the standard set up, sharp enough for me.

    I'd just like a little more 'show' and if any more performance gains then great.

    Love the look of ATE discs aswell!

    In that case,they'd probably hit the right spot.

    I never really liked the OEM brakes,and less so once the car got a bit quicker,but considering how burnt up the VWR kit I had was after that trackday last year,I'm glad we've adapted that a bit further too!

    Any idea on whether '1' is a pair of discs or 1 is actually just a single disc..?

    My guess is single disc.

    Emailed them, they come as a pair, seem like a pretty good deal!

    Edit +VAT! now no longer such a good deal.
