most important thing forgotten is clean the surface which the discs sits on...check run out and follow bed in Procedure from supplier...

There are a pair of used Alcon rotors for sale with 31.5mm (out of 32mm I believe) left on them. The guy wants £200 ish for them. Not sure if they'd fit those bells though.

Yes looks that way unfortunately, ok if price is adjusted to suit.

The Alcons he linked don't have Alcon bells and there specific mounting so Alcon rotors wont fit unfortunately, would new bells as well for those

Reyland do some reasonable price AP based kit yes and offer there own disc or AP options, we have a fair few customers running our pads on them on both and not heard anything bad as yet.

Do the Alcons still use steel pistons? I'm afraid my experience is that these will corrode relatively easily and when it comes to changing a set of well worn pads that corrosion can then interfere with the piston seals.

Notwithstanding Ross's point about long lead times, I personally would choose APs over Alcons all day long.


Furthermore, on a 5 I would go for the slightly smaller 330mm x 28mm AP version. I had both these and the 332mm x 32mm version on my 6, and for some reason the smaller ones seemed to work better. And they are lighter and they fit comfortably under 17" wheels.

Hi guys,

Following a trackday I've been experiencing a metallic noise which increases in repetition as speed elevates and stops when I touch the brake pedal. Also when I push the car and brakes are properly warm I get vibration on the steering wheel when I brake.

So something's definatelly not right down there which brings my plan on brake update a bit earlier than expected.

Current setup is stock disks with DS2500 fronts/rears.

I've been looking at the Brembo MR two-piece disks from autodoc but as of Monday it jumped 200 euro!!!

So, I've been thinking to go with PFC V3 floating disks and carbotech XP10s on the front (rears are new).

Anybody used PFC V3 disks on the X? Any feedback/opinion? They are pricey but as I want to go to a floating disk, I find no other realistic option. Any ideas?

What about the XP10s? I've been reading some very positive reviews vs DS2500 and they seem to be preferable choice vs XP8s on the front.

What is your opinion on XP10s vs XP8s? I think I can live with the noise as I'm not DD the car.
