    S3 Ferodo DS Performance Part Numbers

    Sorry for the late reply Gazwould! I had them on a 2004 Leon Cupra R: Redstuff + EOM Brembo discs as well as with drilled brembos. The DS Performance were also on the drilled brembos and on grooved and dimpled discs. The redstuff didn't do much stopping when cold but with heat worked well...

    New to forum - draft thread location

    Hi Sandara, thanks for the reply. I was trying to post in the S3 8V forum, subject was 'Springs, ARBs, Geometry'. The error message seemed to imply that it thought that I was posting a spam message or something worded that I shouldn't be so I clicked on the save draft button and now I can't...

    Hello all, I'm new to the forum and this is my 1st post! I tried to post a new thread earlier and it wouldn't allow me to - not sure why. I saved it as a draft and now can't find it again. Do you know where it has saved to? Thanks, Chris
