  • I think I have broken a record

    I know I shouldn't find it funny or be proud but I am....... 14200 miles and front and rear pads are ******

    Decided that seeing as vauxhall want £280 to do it I'll spend about the same on some uprated bits and give my mate 20 quid to do it

    so....... who's the best to buy from, thinking some drilled/grooved discs for the front and some better pads all round, I'm looking for perfprmance over life expectancy

      I seem to remember Tarox advertising some new discs and pads for the VXR just recently....

      Living on an island with no out of town speed limits is not without its problems hey?

        He's right, page 87 of the new Total Vauxhall issue Tarox discs £ 270, they do pads as well (not included in the price I beleive), these can run with standard pads.

        See www.tarox.com
