Its totally unecessary, provocative and an insult.

I have the EBC green pads and EBC groove Disc on my A4 1.8 tqm, so if you're in melbourne and you hand to have a look at them closly you can contac me through firstname.lastname@example.org or 0418199223. Also there is a photo on saturday's drive day to show that I do use them hard so I surely don't drive Miss Daisy whatever that is suppose to mean...

I have the above used discs boxed up and sitting in my storeroom looking for some fortunate soul to liberate. 12000k's of light use, not sure what thickness is on them.
$100 bucks and they are gone. I'll even throw in the Ver. 3 pads.
I only replaced them because I was offered a very good price on some EBC discs to go with some free Ver.4 EBC pads.
I found the combination of DBA dics & EBC Ver.3 pads to be good but produced a squeak under light braking. As EBC offer a replacement pad if you experience any squeaking I took up their g'tee. But I also put on new discs as well....so I can't say for sure whether the squeak was solved by the new Ver. 4 pads or by using only EBC gear. I still get a very small occasional squeak under extremely light pedal action but am very happy from that point of view.
Little dust too.
Performance, I don't think there is much difference between the DBA & EBC discs. I did heat up my oil and pads very quickly last time at Sandown with my current set up. Basically cooked them in less than 2 laps. Qualification...I am running nearly double the power than previously
;-) so not fair to compare (It was a previous set of DBA discs that I took on the track too).
I keep meaning to take a stock car for a test of it's brakes to try to remember what the OEM feel was like and to make a valid comparison. So until I do, I won't praise or criticise the EBC set up...I believe they have less initial bite than OEM but are more progressive giving better feel & control but need to confirm that one day. I just NEED MORE STOPPING POWER with the extra horses I have!
