    Rubbish,

    Go for a blat donwn a long straight (couple of miles) get the car up to temp, then from 60 break down to 20 then allow to cool, then the same again. After allowing to cool do the same from 80 a couple of times. ive done this on all my cars/vans and you will find the brakes are better for it. Does smell a bit too........

    I see you havent painted the middle of your discs, when they get wet or you use chemicals, it'll take the coating off and go rusty.

    But those brakes look great! Makes the car look a bit more mean too ;) Looks spot on :)

    I had nut covers but had to get new locking wheel nuts as one was rounded off and they don't fit now unless I leave on off lol! annoying as these new ones as you can see are big and ugly and obvious.

    You do have the advantage of being hot and blonde though. I always find this makes cars look a lot better :p
