Do you want to sell your old R brakes? PM me if you do.

Cheers
BBT's have the old fronts, they are going to sell them with new disc's and pads as mine were shagged, otherwise fine, no peeling of paint etc. Give them a call and try and speak to Shaun, i'm sure he'll be able to sort something out! Mention me (Keith).

Their number is 08452300101 option 1.

Bugger! They sold them last night.
Sorry Guys, I responded to Shaun's thread about this sale rather quickly and was able to collect them on my way home for work.

Decked32, was there any reason why you went for the Stage 5 over their 2 piece replica disks ?

No reason really, on the track I was getting
brake fade after about 3-5 laps or so and when you have to brake from 130+ down to
a reasonable cornering speed and again 15 seconds later it was a big ask from the
standard brakes (although I must say they are great in all other circumstances). I enquired about the ECS stage 5 as I loved the look of the
Porsche calliper and it fills my wheels perfectly. I didn't want to upgrade the
discs and find out that they still weren't right. I know one guy with ECS stage
5 and he's a track king and hasn't experienced any brake fade with the kit so
decided to go with them straight off.

Thanks for the reply.

I've been running my my V5 with 312mm discs at Oulton Park for a day without any problems, but I definately wasn't braking from 130mph.

So if I did upgrade the discs, with R32 calipers, I think I will be ok.
