The Tanner?? You mean, tenner or something else? Sorry I'm probably being really thick

If you dont mind me asking, how much was the AP rear kit including the fitting? I was thinking the other day, I wonder how much my Brembo's at the rear would cost me to buy if they went wrong (and baring in mind I've two right rear calipers as well ) to replace, I thought, ummm..... AP's all round??

If your not happy with the braking I wouldnt have a clue what else to suggest apart from 10 or 12 pots!!

There's your 10 pots, but I reckon they'd be no better than your AP's to be honest mate I could be wrong mind....

lol stopping on a tanner is an old phrase it means stopping very very quick, think 1300 inc fitting, dont get me wrong im very happy with ap brakes, but my newage is so heavy, think rears on yours and stopping will be like hitting a brick wall if with the fronts it doesnt feel like that already

Wouldnt the extra bits add or take away a bit of the weight in the car??

I'm sure its accruite because I did do a test with a DC5 Type R (I happened to have the specs in front of me) and it came out the same as the manufactor timings etc should be...
