      absolutely fabulous.

      It took some time to adjust to the new stopping distances, my passengers would agree. I have only needed to emergency stop with them once, I couldn't have been more impressed, genuinely shocked and how fast the car slowed.

      now that some time has passed i find them fine for every day driving, and would highly highly recommend them. i cannot comment on track as of yet but i have no doubt they will hold there stopping capabilities.

      i hope this has answered your question adequately, if not please say

      Thanks for the feedback. It does help although I'm aiming more for track use. I agree what you said about the braking capabilities, or it may just be me expecting too much from it!

      I recently changed my brake set-up. I have PF 330mm front disc assy (fully floating, alloy bells), PF 07 front pads & PF 01 rear pads. Mocal braided lines & Motul RBF660 fluid. I have to say that the stopping power is immense and virtually fade free. I had some concerns about brake balance, but this set-up retains (imo) the OE characteristics.

      Nice one thanks for your feedback dude. I have just changed my pads to PF's, was thinking to get change the lines too. Do you use use your R on the road much?

      It's not my daily drive and gets 50/50 road and track (high days & dry days!) They seem to work well on road, even from cold - the initial bite is impressive.

      E46? Maybe, would have been a couple of years ago though if it was me.
      How's the sports cat then?
