What do u think? they look ok to me (as in they would look sexy behind my alloys) but will they actually stop the car as price seems on the cheap side?

I have the same ones on my car and I can't fault them. (bought from the same seller - I highly recommend him)

Its a great deal as far as I'm concerned.

Fine set of stoppers, and they look damn good too.
Go for it :thumbup

Yeah not a bad deal at all, as for the "gritty" feel, you do get that but its down to the grooves doing its job, takes a while to get used to. I think in future ill be getting just the drilled option to save a little on eaten away pads.

Oh, and if you get these, you may want to paint the hub as it will look REALLY rusty after a few days, there are other sellers on ebay that have already painted the hub black.
I had to paint mine myself.

Think you get the option of Drilled & Grooved, Grooved only or Drilled only from that seller.

Personally, I'd like to get Drilled & Dimpled, but Im more than happy with the Drilled & Grrooved ones I got

Thats cool. I've recommended mtec100 to a few people.

I'm sure a lot of people would be interested in it

Brilliant. I'll be needing a full set soon, very soon actually. Would be great for the forum to get some credit for the sale, as this is where I heard the guys name after-all :)

Looks like the same things I got, different dealer though. No complains, the hub shows rust badly but not alot can be done due to it stucking out alot

You won't be disappointed with them. I've had those brakes on for over a year and they're still tip-top
