Moley if you are having them fitted at Station Approach don't turn left and blast it up towards the "cock" (we know you like those, it says so on the back of your MINI!!!) roundabout as there is a chuffing big pot hole/trench just past the railway bridge. Don't want you shoving the front wheels back into the wheel arches.

Thanks guys. I am being as careful as I can at the moment. The last thing I need is ANOTHER new tyre and a new alloy Sad

Oh Oh!! They are on!!

I thought my wheels were the best mod ever.......turns out they suck when compared with the brake swap!

I can easily stop in half the distance without ABS cutting in at all Very Happy Just drove back to the office and can't wipe the grin off myself I just stopped from erm........70mph to about 20 in no time at all, totally controlled Very Happy Can you tell I'm happy with them?!!!?

Only downside is the brake lines are the wrong ones so I have had to order new ones again from Lohen (they will do a straight swap) and get them fitted with the new fluid next week (for free, that how nice my local guy is Very Happy) So I guess during the breckie run the brake pedal will still fade a lot as the fluid boils!! hey ho!














And I know this thread would be lame without pictures so.....































(YES Taylor, I am going to clean the wheels tomorrow....honest!!!)

I know nothing technical, so I will just say they look a lot better behind your wheels! Very Happy I think I might need red brake callipers once my wheelies are on.

Ha ha good girl Nik!!

Shame I didn't get to see you today! Had a great time on the Breckie run Very Happy I now have one (very dirty) Milltek in the back of my car, to be fitted next month when I have some more £££

1 accident with the new brakes.....turns out they started smoking after a lot of use :O guess its just burning off the top layer of pad though Smile All seems fine now, worked like a treat!!

I really wanted to be there!! Sad

Can we organise a run out somewhere one evening? Or one day during the week if people can skive off? I'm experiencing withdrawal symptoms now. Laughing

That's good getting the Milltek, lots to changes to Bolan recently! Is it not a bit worrying that the brakes are smoking? Shocked Maybe you're being a bit too heavy footed. Razz

Not this week coming then, the next one, although that depends on what my courtesy car is! You can decide the route - I'm kind like that. Very Happy

Whatever I pick it won't be good enough for you, Mr Speedy - so you can decide, then stop and let me catch up. Razz
