    no name specials, I wouldn't use them as I like my brakes to be reliable.

    Bottom line they are cheap and seem good value for what you get. A set of Front and Rear Brembos is easily doublethat same for Black Diamond.

    Christ know what they are like though! Probably crack the minute you tighten the nut or could last a lifetime and have the stopping power of AP's! Who knows....go on Dan buy some and let us know!

    Drilled discs are a bit of a no no at the best of times, if you're buying cheap ones they could last you a very short period of time, as said above.

    I'd be more comfortable buying cheap grooved discs and trying them out, although the S3 has rubbish brakes as standard so it wouldnt be me!

    Fitted a set of no name specials to my old 306 s16, lasted around 8 days before they were fucked, They warp very easy!

    You get what you pay for...
