Brake disks

Hi I am looking for new brake disks for my fn2 as mine are getting worn, I have seen these on eBay and wondering if they are any good as it seems abit cheap for all 4 disks with pads

Cheers

Are those dimpled or drilled? If drilled, steer clear... They have a tendency to snap. Try and find grooved only.

Thanks for the reply and that's what am looking at as well, are the disks and hoses easy to fit yourself?
Also what brake lines would you recommend

There is literally no point in buying drilled discs for a standard FN2. Grooved, maybe, just to deglaze the pads. But why risk a cracked disc when there are no benefits in having drilled?

I don't use drilled myself any more but used to run the same mtec discs and never had a problem,I no there have been issues in the past with drilled discs cracking but if he is only using them in the road the chance of getting them hot enough to crack is slim to none

I was looking at these before the disks I have posted about, i actually put rpb brake disks on eBay which brought these up.
I just don't fancy paying nearly 700 for 4 disks at the minute to be honest.

Would you not recommend Mtec? Mtec grooved only for all 4 is 117 fro Mtec website

Discs are just for bling really, OEM will work just fine on OEM calipers.

It's only if you're tracking the car do you need to worry about warping / cracking from drilled discs etc (unless you're REALLY abusing it on the b-roads ) I've always gone grooved myself as I'd rather not take the extra risk of cracking having drilled for zero benefits. Again, shouldn't be an issue on the road however.

I've ran MTEC on 3 of my Hondas with no issues so I rate them.

I'd spend the extra money on decent pads and braided lines, OEM fluid is again fine as it's unlikely to get boiled on the roads but RBF600 is good stuff.

Think I will go for the Mtec grooved, can't complain for 117 for all 4.

I have heard grooved are pretty noisy have you noticed it?
