Hi guys,
First post ever on here, although been lurking for a while now. I have had my RCZ for just over a year now, as my first ever car. During the maintenance last week, the garage told me that my front brakes would need replacement in around 15.000 kilometres. The quote they gave me for the original brakes (just front) is around 360 euros in parts, which got me looking at aftermarket sets. Since i have the THP156 without sports pack, i need the 302mm disks, which doesnt leave me with a whole lot of "mainstream" manufacturers. So i need your guys advice;
What disks/pads should i get? i drive spirited on road, and i dont plan on tracking the car, although i do love some sexy looking brakes. i have been looking at EBC (hard to get here), Black diamond (less hard to get here), brembo (they do look less nice, and are very cheap at around 40 euros per disk, so dont know how that works....) Any other brands i missed, that might work for me? Tarox is out of my budget im afraid.

looking forward to participating on here more!

@chrismac the strange thing is, that these almost seem to good to be true. 50 quid per disk? no clue on the quality of these, as i've heard that brembo just rebadges the cheaper disks that they make, but it might just be me that is going insane over brakes

I will report back once fitted and have tried out the performance. They look pretty solid so I'm hopefull.

I bought some MTEC ones for my THP200 but have not installed them. I went for c hook ones and got them coated in silver. For pads I went with Ferodo ecofriction. Originally wanted drilled ones but after reading various posts decided against them and figured c hook is my best option.

Yes I know of other RCZers who have put them on and the c hook look and work well, that's why I ordered full set of disks and pads all round front and rear

Hi, I’ve had the black diamond drilled and grooved with the black rust inhibitor coating they have been on the car almost 5 years now and still look as good as new although I don’t do mega Miles
I’ve got them all round and matched them with their pads I would highly recommend them👍797D1F88-2042-45D9-9C27-005BC2BB582F.jpeg

I have been running these for a few weeks now, I'm impressed. Confident braking, no squealing so all is good. 👍

Neil, roughly how many miles did it take before the coating wore off on your black diamond discs?

It only cones off from the area where the pads touch so almost immediately but the edges and the hubs stay fresh for years definitely worth the extra cost

Yeah that’s what I thought, something has gone wrong with mine, they look shocking. They are still bedding in though.

What do you mean “look shocking”

Well it could just be me, but the coating seems to have disappeared from the groves/holes. Also the disc looks like it has a lot of residue on. It certainly doesn’t look the normal silver colour. I’ve only done just over a 100 mile so it could be that. I’ll try and get some pics tomorrow.
