Did front and rear disc (ferrodo) and pads (Ferrodo DS), looking a lot better now.
Old ones were not completely used, but they looked horrible.

Did you use shims?

My brakes currently have them but I think they are stupid....

I've got a full set of TRW discs and pads to fit. What DS did you use? Performance or DS2500?

The cheap ones might let in water etc due to poorer design tolerances maybe?

As the mirrors are pretty exposed and basically take the brunt of everything the road throws at your car....
They should be a sponge type seal running around the indicators when you get them. When you remove the old ones you will see how that has deteriorated.

What tyres did you go for, I have Dunlop sport Max's on the rear, it came with those and I fitted Michelin ps4s to the front. Not sure when I replaced my rears to go with Michelin's to try something else.
Goodyear AS5 for fronts, don’t know what to put on rears, was going to put uniroyal rain sports for price, then when they worn move fronts to rear and more AS5 on front.
