    Finally got some luck my way

    Picked up my delivery of the EBC rotors and pads. To my confusion I had 4 sets of pads and no rotors! Rang EBC direclty lucky they were open on a Saturday he said the pads were the same part no as the rotor which they had none in stock hence the mistake.

    Ok fair enough but my car is booked in to have these fitted on Wednesday I can give you the grooved rotors I told him I wish they're double the price. He said since we've stuffed you about you can have them for an extra $50!

    dance In the end I've paid $270 for the pair of grooved rotors not a bad price I say

    He told me that these needed to be run in properly and can take 1,000kms. Whats the best way?

    Come on the drive on Sunday. By the end of that they'll either be run in or stuffed. One or the other. roll_lau

    Lucky you... but how come they're 'booked in' for fitting?

    A simple job like that, no special tools... do it yourself!

    Remember, a lot of people who'd do the job will charge you the labour plus what they would have made on the parts if you supply them yourself...

    Several good solid stops, followed by general firm applications for the first few hundred K was the way I learned it.

    No pussyfooting , but no panic stops either.

    Comments?
