Are you going to buy big brake kit or just discs and pads?

Stoptech slotted discs, ferodo ds 2500 pads, hel lines, RBF 600 fluid.

The above will see you stopping better.

This!!!!

My exact setup there, well I've actually got Do Luck lines.

This is probably as good as you will get without bigger disks/calipers.

Should of probably just said "braided lines" as they all do the same job and i think hel are the cheapest ? Or one of the cheapest.

Sumo had a deal on Do Luck ones, if you can get hold of them that made them around the same price as HEL lines, just need to make sure you get the right blocks.

I think I read the Do Luck ones are actually made by HEL.

What Andy says or to save a bit the Plain stoptechs or even Brembo Plains.

The focus should be on quality parts and not gimmicks that make a neglible difference such as grooves and dimples etc.

To be fair you won't get the Ferodo/Stoptech slotted combo for under 400 either, let alone lines and fluid!!

You love a good dimple .

But this ^, i think the ds2500's need to be in the shopping cart though they are an excellent pad.

I forget if the spoon Calipers require S2K rotors but Stoptech slotted 300mm are around 200 delivered IIRC.

HC+ pads last time i checked were around 140 for fronts plus taxes etc so it is do- able but leaves sod all for the sundries, which if going for a good set up would be a must have imo
