    i just ordered from these guys a week ago, next day delivery Very helpful.

    As to the pads, Ifitted DS2500 with new standard discs and can notice a difference beyond the usual new for old.

    Have done a few hundred miles and they have inspired confidence will see how they fair when used in anger!!!

    My experience has shown that uprated/drilled/grooved disks don't really offer anything over the OEM items..they just tend to cost more and look nicer! Getting decent pads is far more important.

    This view is shared by many people I know who own performance cars, but I'm sure there will be people on here who will disagree.

    I was thinking about the DS2500 but fear they maybe a little hard for the discs and warp them.
