Hi Chaps
Having owned my 2000S for 3 years and loving her decided to treat her to some new disc and pads all round. The existing discs are scored beyond skimming.

Looking at prices a full brembo package wasn't that much more expensive and as Ill be keeping this car till my knees finally won't let me in it anymore iv bitten the bullet and shelled out the 387 for them.

Has anyone else used these and are they worth the extra money.

One thing I can't stand is rusty hub spacers showing on the discs, is it worth painting them now or will they not go rusty being brembos.

Sebro coated rotors won't rust at the hub area and are a lot cheaper than Brembo.
