    As per the title, had an oil service today and they checked the run out on the front disc's as the car has developed a wobble when braking at around 50mph...both front disc's are out, i'm not happy as they are under 2 years old and only done about 12,000 miles
    Anyone got any good stories to tell me about their brakes and give some recommendations, needless to say i won't be using EBC's again

    Will be getting them myself when needed (which will be shortly!).. I'll be getting the slightly less out there round ones mind not the jagged edged versions!

    Thanks for the replies guys, i think i'm going back to oem, pretty poor imo for disc's to last under 2 years and the strange thing mine was the 2nd car in the local indy this week with ebc dics problems, bit of a panic as i'm away down the south coast on Friday and have got no time to do them, so it's back in tomorrow to sort out the discs and the clutch i thought i was getting a bit of slip, can't complain really as 120,000 from the original clutch isn't bad going...so if anyone knows of any parks/woods/forests with any healthy money trees growing please point me in their direction

    I'm sure you'll be ok, there must be 1000's out there and i guess i was just one of the few unlucky ones, they are guaranteed for 12 months/10,000 miles so just keep an eye on them

    i don't like ebc pads or discs I would go OEM for the discs unless you do a lot of track work or the car is heavily modded.
