    Naughty Boy??? More like stoopid boy! What was the reason for that? Is it because he could not smoke up his tyres so he steamed up his brakes instead

    Warping would normally be caused by running the temp. up on the discs, then sitting with your foot on the brake while they cool so that they cool unevenly.

    I agree with Steve & A20, they aren't warped, 'cause warped discs don't get better !

    One of my mates warped/fecked his discs quite quickly, but he had a caliper that used to stick, so they were red hot all the time and hefty braking just fecked em worse....... Guessing a very hot caliper plus rain/spray could do it this quick, but I'd say road surface.......

    After going through two sets of front discs(1 BMW 1 Pattern) I upgraded to EBC drilled and grooved disc with green stuff pads on the recomendation of the sales guy at EBC.I do most of my driving at high speed on motorway and the need for hard braking from high speeds warped the other discs.
    All I can say is 14000 miles now and they just seem to get stronger.Pads don't seem to have worn any more than standard.
    Thus ends EBC product review for today
    Boyo
