    Deffo want some bells. The thing is I have just replaced my discs (before you knew for certain this was going ahead) So basically the question is if i have the bells now (to make sure I get a set), Can I be fairly sure the rotors will be avialable down the line for future purchase?

    Rgs

    Dor.

    P.S. What's servicing and checking period for the rotor to bell bolts? Torque ratings etc?

    As Bill is away i'll answer that you need to swap the bolts for new ones everytime you do a disc change.
    Unsure of torque settings, sorry

    Hello m8.
    rotors should be available down the line... you could always take off your OE ones andf keep them for a rainy day.
    I'll post torque settings on these bolts later today. (they should be replaced every time)

    regards

    Just fitted mine today with 8 groove AP discs and carbon metallic pads along with new rear discs and pads.
    Need time to bed them in before commenting on performance but feels nice and maybe the car will brake in straight line now.
    Old brakes were absolutely f*cked :rolleyes: :redface:

    Bill will post some pics on my behalf, i'm not a fan of looks, aslong as it works then that's fine, but these do look really good and the quality of the bells is excellent.
    Coupled up to AP discs this whole setup should be awesome :thumbup:

    I hope.......need some reassurance now Bill :D :D :whistle: :cheers:

    Reassurance.. LOL, they stop me :D That good enough? :)

    you could have washed your wheels m8 :p

    EDIT: Bed them in progressively... not attack them from cold. Ease a temperature cycle into them progressively, build up speed and brake pedal pressure on successive stops. Disks will look grey with CM transfer layer on them when done. Let them cool, then ready to go. :cheers:
