    I was looking to upgrade my brakes and was considering going for the greenstuf pads and vented discs, but came across a new brand that i havent heard of before (excuse my ignorance) has anyone heard of Black Diamond disks and pads? Better still, has anyone had any experience with them?

    The discs are all black rather than silver, not sure how this will look, any feedback on the matter woiuld be greatly appreciated.

    Having an Amd remap tomorrow. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/groovy.gif

    Devo, Black diamond have been around for quite a while IIRC, and are definately not an unknown, as far as I know they have good products, but not having personally used them or had any experience with them I can't tell you if/how good they are, just they are known.

    maybe try doing some research on the black diamond stuff on the UK Scooby forums - IIRC these are popular with the Subaru community.
