Dave if you are interested in the PNM then e-mail me. I may have a few ideas up my sleeve to save you some cash from their kits.

As for the EBC turbo groove discs, note that this is not really upgrading. It spending a lot of money for the same size disc but with slots and dimples in.

Dimples don't do anything as all they are doing is mimicing drilled discs which were designed to dispurse head from Asbestos type pads. Now we don't have these pads anymore, we only need slots which take the glazing off the pads.

The PNM and any other bigger disc is a proper upgrade. Also don't buy Green Stuff pads as they are awful. They leave lots of brake dust and are harsh to your discs. Use a different compound. I have used and would recommend hawk pads which are about the same price and EBC ones but are superior.

Iam getting bigger discs for my V8 which has the same brakes as yours. Iam only having them on for a couple of months until I get my disc and alloy bells. These discs will be availible if you want them ina few months time?

Hope this helps,
