Im using mtec grooved.There good because I have porsche pistons  :happy2: Best discs Ive had were EBC with textar and pagid pads  :happy2: The EBC must be close to £200/axle. There must be deals for pad and disc combo
brakes, rims, hatch, handle, head unit, rust rust and more rust needing attention

Am using mtec c hook with endless mx72 pads. Awesome performers and streets ahead of the EBC redstuff I tried before. The latter weren’t bad - had good bite with some heat in them / quiet / low dust - but the MX72 are superb. Also use steel hoses / bronze caliper bushes / ATE 200.
