Omp Disks + Pads

Hi all, Happy new year !

just wondered if anyone out there was using OMP disks and pads at all as replacements ?? i can see some on ebay for far cheaper than any ebc or tarox parts.

is it worth going for the expensive replacement bits if your just doing mainly motorway miles ?? i've already got the standard brembo gold calipers..


Cheers

Russ

first off dump the ebc pads, wouldn't touch them with a barge pole.

ferodo or mintex are prob the best
