    Default Black Diamond?

    Hello,

    Advertisement


    I was wondering if anyone has used Black Diamond rotors on a GTI 6? I am looking at replacing standard rotors (front and back) with either Black Diamond or DBA.

    Any recommendations? Has anyone used Black Diamond or DBA rotors with standard Peugeot pads?

    Thanks for the advice in advance.

    Black diamond will be pricey...

    I have dba slotted on my s16, with genuine peugeot pads.

    The pads are too hard, and seem to be wearing the rotors more than they should. I'd go for a softer pad for sure...

    Thanks Kyle,

    DBA Rotors are about $200 each for the front - Pads are about the same. I was thinking of buying rotors, then upgrading pads later. Thanks for the advice.

    Do you think the DBA slotted rotors are better than standard?

    Check this thread out

    Slotted Rotors for Gti 180

    It's worth looking at the EBC pads & discs - I'm running greenstuff's on my 206 and I've found them to be really good all round!
