Hi to all.
1.What are best brake pads for oem brake discs? If I bought sport/tuning ones (gruppe N) standart brake disc will worn really fast. Br. discs are still from factory 6 years and 75000km. (so last pads -then new discs and pads will be needed)

2.It´s suficient to have good brakes in front and standart oem set in back?

3. I found brake disc from honda civic vti 1,8-169ps - front and rears seam to be same as ZS180 (f282/23min;r262/10min)

Did someone heard of this CTF comany?(few of my friends have them on other cars and seems to be ok) I like to buy CTF gruppe N disc and pagid´s or omp pads maybe feroddo ds.

4. Will steel brake hoses really improve braking? oj just a pedal feel.

thanks for replyes

I changed my brakes to groved discs and EBC yellow stuff pads.

I am happy with this set up, it is definatly better than O/E.

Brake dust is less than O/E and the brakes are sharper.

The only downside is that you get more noise but it isn't much.

I have braided hose on my MGF, they allow you to get more pressure on the brakes as they don't expand like rubber and loose some of the pressure between peddle and pad.
