Just to update this thread,I ordered some new rotors and pads,pushed the boat out and went for the EBC Sports Disc Kit and Greenstuff pads.Three weeks later,£210 lighter and from the second supplier,finally got to fit them today.The pics below show the INSIDE brake paths,the outside paths look absolutely fine,but as you can see,was pretty relieved to get them off and new ones fitted...............








And the very pleasing finished look..........

Nice one higgi!

Looks great - the new discs together with the Greenstuff and red calipers look the business.

....Think I better check mine now ....

How you finding the green stuff pads for dust?

I've had them on my ZS for a few weeks now and I'm finding that they are absolutely awful for dust (far worse than OEM) despite being labelled as low dust.

I dunno if I got a dodgy batch or something but I'm having to clean my front wheels and the bottom panels of the front doors every other day due to the streaky build up. I'm not pushing her hard at the moment either.

(not meaning to thread hijack!)
