    I'm currently using DS2000s and they're a bit better with the dust and can't notice much difference between the 2500s on the road performance wise.

    I was waiting for this post ;)

    I was sure I'd taken a photo of the pads but can't find them. Anyway they were marked as Ferodo road pads when I bought them but printed on the back of them was "DS2000". When I come to change them I'll get a pic.

    Glad I can teach the brake master something new. I thought I'd take a punt on them as it seemed silly to buy more DS2500s when my car rarely goes on track. I've been happy with the 2000s and they were ok at Bedford Autodrome last year too.

    Brake info sounds really interesting, thanks Westy.

    If I am honest I love these brakes as they are, and as such will be buying the highest performance pads and discs I can. Already I have had some great experiences with them, well worth the use of handbrake late at night and cleaning.

    :)

    This morning was a good morning.

    Up early, which made me grumpy because I need a lay in.

    [​IMG]

    Wheels were minging, after four days and 20 miles.

    So I used the "blind test" product, a PH balanced wheel cleaner designed to protect any waxes and protect products on the wheels.

    [​IMG]

    Hope it works!

    [​IMG]

    It really really does! Best wheel cleaner I have ever used!

    [​IMG]


    So I rinsed and washed the car, two buckets obviously and Hubiwash.*

    Then used Sonax Xtreme detailed to bring it back up.*

    Trims and recesses cleaned with 3:1 diluted Auto Finesse APC.

    Then waxed with Angel Wax Desirable...which is outstanding!

    Then glazed with AMD RaceGlaze, which spreads so well and comes off with no fuss.

    Cleaned the glass with Gtechniq perfect glass.*

    Blacked the plastics with Megs endurance and hoovered the inside and dressed the plastics with the Sonax detailer.

    It looks good. :)*

    And a cheeky edit.

    Dull update I know.

    I know where to come when I need to find what products to use on my car to make it look like glass :) lol

    Surprised you haven't gone for a full on S3 spoiler what with all the other S3 parts on the car or is it to much hassle to get it on there?

    I like the stubby bum on A3's, they look a little cleaner.

    The only S3 parts on him are the seats, so not too much chopped and changed.

    Anybody is welcome to a day on my drive playing cars, as long as they provide biscuits and cigarettes.

    Double thanks.

    Mounts were epic, it's good that they have lived on having served you so well haha.

    I don't know how I am going to get up to you to get these wheels, you haven't given me a list of goodies yet :)

    Sorry bust at work, trying to find a run around. I'm going to sit down probably tomorrow night and make a list. Most parts will be coming off not this weekend but next.

    You need these though

    I know I need them.

    I could probably get most of what you want for the arms for my old ones. Hmmmm...

    Just depends how much I get paid really.

    I could do with sorting out seats before ADI, and I have MOT and tax next month.

    I put the effort in once every 6 months, then use quick detailers etc to keep on top of it. Wheels get cleaned 3/4 times a week, car gets washed once a week and sprayed over with quick detailer 3/4 times a week, interior get hoovered once a month and if you're dirty you don't get in.

    Bonnet doesn't get opened. :)

    I don't post the pictures for anybody else benefit, I just like documenting what I'm doing and giving people the chance to view it :)

    Your car ALWAYS looks pimp, because it is generally. :)

    The Brembos came off Prawns car, hence the orange. It goes well with the black.

    -

    Currently speaking to Brotek about trying some Angelwax Dark Angel which will apparently be even better than Desirable. Which is supposed to be one of the best waxes that non-millionaires can buy for black cars.
